Susana Balbo Crios Malbec 2014
|Appellation||Alto Vale de Uco|
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Crios Malbec is now sourced exclusively from different zones in the Uco Valley and in the future the label will mention it. They define this wine as lush with hints of spices. It has a floral-driven nose, with, yes, hints of spices, but no traces of oak, only a lactic twist, perhaps from the malolactic fermentation; part of the blend is never in contact with oak and is produced exclusively in stainless steel. Juicy, with those telltale Malbec round tannins, this can be drunk so easily it can be dangerous! The back labels of the Crios range give some hints of what food to pair with the wine, and here they mention tuna steak, lamb and hamburgers... umm! A champion in its price range. 480,000 bottles produced.
