Iluminado Vinos de la Luz Single Vineyard Malbec
Platinum - Best in Show: Best in Show
This year's Argentinian representative in our Best in Show collection is an energetic, perfumed and vital Malbec which almost seems to combine European-style freshness while retaining all of its Andean generosity and solar brightness. A dark, saturated black-red in colour, you'll find refined, intricate aromas of forest flowers, blueberries and blackberries with sweet tobacco leaf. The wine is intensely perfumed on the palate, too; remarkably so given that it is already over three years old. Its sumptuous plum, damson and sloe fruits are bright and fresh, while lively acidity and generous though chiselled tannins make for an exceptionally well-proportioned red that will age with ease. Drink 2019-2030.
