Finca Agostino ‘Inicio’ Malbec 2020

Mendoza, Argentina

Agostino Finca wines pay tribute to the vineyards that the Agostino brothers learned to care for with great passion from their grandfather’s teachings.  Today, with the use of precision viticultural techniques, the vineyards deliver wines with the most distinguished expression of the Uco Valley and Maipú terroirs.

40% of the Inicio has been aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels.  The result is a perfect example of why everyone loves Malbec; nuances of spice, pepper and vanilla with super structure and smoothness.  The flavours are integrated and delicious.  Will benefit from decanting but not essential.  Best savoured with flavoursome dishes.

Ageing capacity – up to five years.


Finca Agostino ‘Familia’ Malbec Blend

It’s great to have wines with good maturity and this 2015 vintage offers layer upon layer of developed character.  Named after the ‘family’ that owns Finca Agostino, four red grape varietals represent the four brothers of the family. Not only do you get a good ‘sock’ of the ever-popular rounded Malbec, but the Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Syrah (or Shiraz) give a welcome bite of spicy pepper, toasted almonds and vanilla.

Aged in young, French oak barrels, the wine has deliciously soft tannins, a hint of cassis and bramble fruit.  Decanting is advisable for this wine.


Santa Julia ‘Organic’ Malbec 2021, Zuccardi

New Vintage!

The 2021 has just arrived and we can honestly report after tasting it earlier this month, it is showing beautifully.  Ahh, Malbec – soft, elegant and mouth-filling.  That’s why we love it!  This organic wine from the Zuccardi family is full of fresh and youthful blackberry aromas.  There’s a hint of cedar wood and soft vanilla on the tongue and a long, elegant, juicy finish.


Celebrating World Malbec Day

The big day is 17th April! Domingo Faustino Sarmiento (the 7th president of Argentina) is the man to thank.  In 1853 he decided it was time to kick the Argentinian wine industry into action!  On the 17th April 1853 he submitted a proposal which would put Argentina on the world wine map. It was that year, 1853, that the Malbec […]


Why everyone loves Malbec

Having recently introduced (by popular demand) another Argentine Malbec to our range, we started asking ourselves the question… “why do people love Malbec so much?” It’s a funny one… most people seem to think Argentina when discussing Malbec.  Yet Malbec originated in France, where it is a relatively obscure and minor component in Bordeaux blends; […]
