Monster mega Medalla! A Gold medal, 95/100 Decanter rated, premium Malbec with all the trimmings and a huge saving as part of this importer vintage clearance. A whopper, a stonker, a jaw dropper, we could go on all day but trust us you won’t find a better Malbec for the money!
Made by Trapiche, four times winner of “Argentina Wine Producer of the Year”. Medalla is their flagship Malbec produced to celebrate their 100th anniversary and was Argentina’s first premium wine.
Using 100% premium Malbec fruit from the Uco Valley (nicknamed the Napa Valley of Argentina!) in Mendoza and aged for 18 months in French oak. This has so much wow factor! A big, powerful red with a tsunami of intense ripe red berry fruit flavours, a touch of spice with a velvety smooth finish. What an absolute class act! You certainly don’t score 95/100 at the one of the world’s great wine competitions by fluke…
Gold medal, 95/100 (Decanter World Wine Awards)
“Exuberant and youthful with notes of dark fruits and violets. Excellent structure with sophisticated tannins, fresh acidity and an attractive savoury complexity. Full and rounded finish. Very moreish.”
5 Stars, 94/100 (Sam Kim, Wine Orbit)
“Wonderfully fruited and sweetly expressed, the bouquet shows blackberry, blueberry jam, game, cedar and cocoa characters. The palate is concentrated and fleshy, delivering excellent power and intensity together with silky texture and supple tannins. Mouthfilling and delectable”
