TASTING NOTE: The pale and delicious 2019 Appellation Lunlunta Malbec is expressive and floral and really thriving in this cool vintage. This is fresh and ethereal, a lot fresher than the traditional Malbecs from the zone. It's juicy with velvety tannins and vibrant acidity. 330,000 bottles produced. Volumes have grown in this range but the quality remains. The Appellation range delivers excellent value and would be my go-to range for casual quality drinking at incredible prices.
