Crios Malbec
Crios Malbec 2017/18 [75cl] Agentina

Bursting with black fruit aromas and a fusion of toasty oak and vanilla notes this Malbec is the perfect creation from Susana Balbo's stable of Crios (young offspring) wines. Plump, with dark cherries and brambles complemented with a touch of spice and smoky oak, this full bodied wine finishes long with soft silky tannins offering up a lot more than the price would suggest.

Crios means “offspring”. Winemaker Susana Balbo has chosen this word to reflect the notion that these wines haven’t quite “grown up” to the same level of maturity as her other, more premium wines, but they receive the same loving care and attention as all of her wines. This is probably the champion of the range – a fabulous mix of crushed red cherries and toasty / smoky oak.

Screaming value - Stephen Tanzer.
