(2018) Oenologist Bruno Motter studied winemaking in Mendoza, Argentina, which perhaps has helped him coax such an expressive Malbec from these hillside vineyards at around 500-metres altitude. In some ways this is a super-charged example, heaving with chocolate and mulberry, a raspberry ripple, creamy density of fruit, and yet it has elegance too. Six months in French and American oak adds to that cocoa depth, but there is such pure red fruit at the core of this, a soft but tight-grained tannin structure, and fine cherry acidity, that it is pretty and poised too. A big, open-armed crowd-pleaser and excellent.
