We have extended the range and you have bought so enthusiastically that sales are up 25%. Thank you. After two unusually cool years, 2017 is a lovely warm vintage and the wines return to the typically ripe and fruity style.

Malbec remains a great variety in Argentina, and works well either solo or blended. The cool Uco Valley south of Mendoza is producing some of the best examples. The sub-regions of El Peral, Gualtallary, Vista Flores, La Consulta and Paraje Altamira are developing their own personalities. These rarely find their names on the label as some have been trademarked but people are working to find a solution.

The rich, soft and opulently fruity bonarda grape makes superb wines in warm years and we have made an excellent one with Sebastian Zuccardi called Las Piletas Santa Rosa Bonarda. It’s plumptious and highly recommended!
