    "Malbec at its most elegant!" ~ Decanter Magazine

    You're going to want to dive into this delicious Sophenia Synthesis Malbec as soon as you get a whiff. Its dark, intense, and offers intoxicating aromas of flowers, dark fruit and smokey earthiness. It's made for meat winelovers! Fill your glasses and tuck into sweet and tangy pulled pork sliders. You won't be disappointed. If you can tear yourselves away from those, follow them up with grilled skirt steak drizzled with a basil pesto and crumbled gorgonzola. Caramba!Pasta with chorizo, cherry tomatoes, arugula and garlic is another tasty option. Or, grilled lamb burgers with mint aioli and pickled onions. ¿Cómo vas a decider??! You won't find it cheaper on the web... There's that too.

    Decanter:  Awarded Platinum Medal - Best in Show. "Malbec at its most elegant! Deep, brooding, earthy notes mingled with wild mountain herbs, grass and juicy, intense, spicy dark cherries. Incredibly pure with perfect oak and a very long, fresh finish." 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards, May 2018

    Winery:  "Deep and intense ruby red colour with violet hues. Intense, great aromatic expressions. Concentrated floral notes - violet, roses- and black pepper, combined with ripe red fruit like plum and blackberry. The aging in french oak confers elegant aromas and flavor of smoke and tobacco melted with chocolate notes. In the mouth it starts sweet and generous giving way to a complete and concentrated palate with a long, fruity, elegant finish."
