Barrel Select Malbec 2020 – Finca Las Moras
The elegant Barrel Select Malbec from Finca Las Moras comes in bright crimson in the glass. The nose of this finca Las Moras red wine reveals all kinds of plums, mulberries, blackcurrants and shadow morals. As if this were not already impressive, further aromas such as cigar crates, oak wood and toasted barrique are added due to the ageing in a small wooden barrel.
This dry red wine from Finca Las Moras is for wine drinkers who would best have 0.0 grams of sugar in the wine. The Barrel Select Malbec is already quite close to this, since it was vinified with just 5.1 grams of residual sugar. On the tongue, this balanced red wine is characterized by an incredibly velvety texture. Due to the balanced fruit acidity, the Barrel Select Malbec flatters with pleasant mouthfeel without letting it miss freshness at the same time. The finale of this maturable red wine from the San Juan wine-growing region finally inspires with remarkable reverberation. The finish is also accompanied by mineral facets of sandstone dominated soils.
