The juicy and fruit-driven 2018 Stone Soil Select Malbec was produced with grapes from a stony vineyard in Altamira, and the wine is fresh and floral with a mineral palate, a chalky texture and a dry and serious finish. All these wines are more about the soil than the variety, but of course have features from the grape, which is quite sensitive to the place where it grows. Affordable mineral Malbec. It was bottled after nine months in used oak barrels.

Lots of black and red cassis on the nose with undertones of cedar and stone, following through to a medium body, firm tannins and an attractive finish. Very fine tannins here… Drink now or hold.
