WINE OF THE MONTH
2016 Malbec Reserva, Gouguenheim, Mendoza, Argentina
Malbec is an Argentinian success story and this wine from Patricio Gouguenheim is made at high altitude, in the foothills of the Andes where the grapes enjoy an almost perfect ripening environment. This lovely example has big cherry and coffee aromas, chunky flavours of damson and a subtle toasty oak finish, and is the perfect match for a fine steak. It’s priced £11.50 per bottle.
