Marvellous MalbecsWe have been seeking a new Malbec producer for some time and were bowled over by the Tinto Negro estate’s Malbecs at a recent South American tasting. Chiswick manager Andy describes them as “the best Malbecs I’ve tasted all year. Their silky smoothness and bright acidity really sets them apart from other musclebound Mendoza fruit-monsters.”

Unsurprisingly, we snapped them up and are delighted to be able to offer them at an increased for a limited period. This offer closes on closes on Friday 1 November.

Alto Valle Malbec 2012

From vineyards 5000 feet above sea level, this Malbec offers an abundance of dark blackberry and cherry fruit and well as a racy freshness and balance due to the uncommonly cool Andean nights.
Normal bottle price £15.00 – Offer price £12.00

San Carlos Limestone Block Malbec 2012

As you’d expect from the name, the limestone soils of San Carlos give this wine a steely minerality to complement the juicy fruit. Small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot add structure and finesse to an exceptionally refined wine.

Normal bottle price £17.00 – Offer price £13.50

Finca La Escuela Malbec 2011

Named after the small school (escuela) located on the property which Tinto Negro actively support through donations and scholarships, this wine’s mellow palate of dark fruit is deliciously rich and exotic. 12 months in French oak adds texture and a spiced vanilla character.

Normal bottle price £28.00 – Offer price £22.50

1955 Vineyard Malbec 2012

A combination of exceptionally low yields and gnarly old vines have allowed Tinto Negro to produce a wine of outstanding quality and finesse. Intense flavours of black fruit are underpinned by spice, coffee and fine grain tannins. Structured, powerful and elegant, this can be drunk now but will reward at least ten years in the cellar.

Normal bottle price £46.00 – Offer price £38.00

A minimum purchase of six bottles mixed is required to qualify for the offer price; the minimum quantity for free delivery is 12 bottles.
