ANUBIS Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina.
A velvet-soft, easy-drinking expression of the Malbec variety from Argentina’s first lady of wine, Susana Balbo – plenty of lush dark fruit characters and touches of spice and chocolate.
A pleasingly soft wine with appealing suggestions of eucalyptus that underpin the raspberry fruit, but then gives way to a well-balanced edge of slate-influenced minerality and a burst of acidity. It is full, long, and even brings in a whisper of cinnamon.
World Food Wine; Serve at room temperature with red meats and BBQs.
Source; Mendoza’s 1000 metre altitude in the foothills of the Andes, together with the warm days of dazzling light and the cool nights are ideal for producing wines of superb balance and intensity.
