Bemberg La Linterna Malbec 2015, La Consulta, Mendoza, Argentina

Bemberg Estate Wines

Dry red wine, 75cl. Full bodied 100% Malbec from La Consulta, Mendoza, Argentina. 14.5% ABV.

Brightness of fruit and an irresistible violets fragrance draws you in. A complex spectrum of blackberry, damson, caramelized cherry, wild herbs, fennel, peppery ruccola, marzipan and cacao further adds to the charismatic expression. Focused and polished with vibrant acidity, grippy tannins and a strong mineral graphite backbone giving a flinty restraint to the lush and chalky texture. A stylish and elegant wine which cleverly combines beautiful energy with gentle power. SWA Gold Medal.

Tasting notes from the judges of the Sommelier Wine Awards 2020

'A complex, layered wine with black cherry, black plum, blueberry, blackberry and violets, as well as some toast, smoke and leather, with good concentration and a well-balanced structure of acidity, tannins and alcohol.' Adam Michocki, The Man Behind The Curtain. 'With sweet, ripe and jammy fruits, this is a very polished style that's good for high-end steak restaurants.' Laura Rhys MS, team leader.
