Santa Julia Reserva Malbec 2018

Tasting Notes

5/22/20
This wine is thoroughly delicious and fruit forward with lifted red fruits that are juicy and vibrant with enough grip on the back end to give it structure and to focus the fresh fruit flavors on its medium to medium fuller frame. Drinking spot on this is something to enjoy without pretense. This has serious value written all over it.

Winemaker Notes

2018 is a very good vintage in the Valle de Uco, and the 2018 Reserva Malbec is produced with grapes from there. The Reserva range saw a big change with the 2015 vintage, especially in the oaking. Only a small percentage of the volume of this wine ages in well-seasoned oak barrels, no more than 10% to 15%, and the wine comes through as juicy and fruit driven, fresh, with bright fruit and a tender palate. They produce some 930,000 bottles of this Reserva.

A very bright, lithe and juicy young malbec that delivers intense fresh red cherries and plums with fine, assertive and focused tannins. Modern, fresh and delicious malbec.
