A combination of 3 different styles of Argentinian Malbec and a perfect gift for any Malbec lover! Combining the Los Haroldos Malbec (replacing the Blue Horn in the image), the stunning premium Hermandad Malbec and the sweet style of Zucchardi Malamado Malbec.
The Los Haroldos 2020 has grapes sourced from both the premium Lujan de Cuyo and Uco Valley regions of Mendoza. The intensity derived from planting at altitude is evident and having seen no oak, all of the characteristics come purely from the grapes themselves and are shaped by the almost perfect terroir in which they are grown. A classic Argentinian Malbec with fresh blackberry fruit, juicy tannins and a ripe plum finish with hints of damson.
The 2017 Hermandad Malbec is something extremely special. Over the last few vintages it has been awarded 91 Points by Tim Atkin MW and Harpers Wines Stars awarded it 5 Stars. In addition to this it has won the much coveted ‘Star of Mendoza’ and ‘Star of Argentina’ for achieving the highest overall score of wines submitted from Mendoza and in all of Argentina.
A full bodied, rich wine with ripe black fruit flavour supported by rich cherries and juicy plums, there are also hints of violets and vanilla. Great texture comes from the 15 months ageing in new French oak barriques. This really is winemaking at its best and a cliché we know but perfect with a good quality steak.
Finally the Zuccardi Malamado Malbec is a sweet style of Malbec, fortified and a similar style to Port. Notes of dried plums, figs, nuts and a hint of spice are accompanied by a luscious palate and a rounded sweetness. Perfect at the end of a meal with chocolate desserts or strong blue cheese. Zuccardi pride themselves on making wines that express their place of origin, again the perfect terrior of the foothills of the Andes.
