Belasco de Baquedano Apo Malbec 2020 75cl

£12.95

Tasting Note

Very glossy fruit, berry coulis, meadow sweet, blackberry and apple compote-warming and rounded. Very drinkable indeed, and such value!  "Apo" is a term used by the indigenous Mapuche tribe as a tribute to the nature's elements, to the sun that shines down on them, to the rain, and to the water from the snow melting off the snow-capped Andes, all vital elements in the lifecycle of their vines.

Producer

Made by Bertrand Bourdil, the former winemaker at Mouton-Rothschild and co-founder of Opus One.  Their wines are far from your average Malbecs down the local pub: making the most of their high elevation and old vines, the style highlights the savoury notes of the grape and draws out a more sinewy character than is usually found in these parts.
