The Party Malbec 2020 Vegan, Valle de Uco, Mendoza
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer RICCITELLI
This idiosyncratic 100% Malbec has a very youthful extremely deep intense violet-purple colour. The complex, intense, fruit-driven, plum-cherry-raspberry purée nose has some very interesting earthy notes along with hints of garrigue. It is very dry, medium-full bodied, quite rich, ripe and extracty with lots of intense, plum-raspberry-cassis-cherry fruit flavours followed up by a long, lingering, still slightly grippy finish. Fermented in whole bunches and aged for 12 months in concrete, this bold unoaked Uco Valley red has 14% alcohol and under 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L1242 on the back label. I would try it with a medium-rare rib steak. CSPC 24881

TASTING NOTE: The 2020 Malbec The Party was made with agro-ecological grapes from the Uco Valley, fermented in whole bunches and aged for 12 months in concrete. A bold purple in hue. The mild nose presents notes of violet, cherry, blackberry and hints of herbs. Relaxed with chalky tannins, the stems keep things tight, tickling the gums a little. A red of texture that maintains the variety's easygoing feel; that's the key. Drinking window: 2021-2035. Score - 92 (Joaquín Hidalgo, vinous.com, Nov. 2021) Price $ 19.95
Bottle Size 750 mL
