DRINK OF THE WEEK
17th December 2018
Norton Winemaker's Reserve Malbec Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza
Drinker Rating 91
So with Christmas approaching it's time to spend a little more on your bottles. This is no run of the mill Argentinian malbec, it's made with real skill and care that's reflected in the palate.
It begins with a wonderfully complex nose, violets, a hint medicinal and bold black fruit. The fruit persists in the mouth and there's a wonderful savoury warmth and full body to the wine.
At thirteen quid this is a good contender for a wine to go with a festive meal and would also make a great gift for the in-laws.
A little more expensive but worth every penny.
