Lagarde Malbec 2018
A truly delicious Malbec. Its colour, an intense violet red, is an indication of an ambrosial wine. It has the aroma of ripe red fruit and jams; accentuated by notes of vanilla, chocolate, and oaky smoke. It has a balanced and complex flavour. A special wine to complement meats, and tomato-based pasta dishes.
