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.
