Benegas Estate Malbec 2017 MAGNUM
Part of the story of this tremendous, historic producer is its gentle evolution into the modern era. This cracking Malbec comes from Benegas plantings at their own Finca La Encerrada vineyard in Gualtallary, Uco Valley, at 1,450 MASL.
Floral and mineral aromatics typical of this area mingle with impressive black fruit concentration in a wine that is big and polished, yes, but ultimately fresh and very finely judged with just 6 months in second use French oak barrels. A lovely, big, decadent bottle of Malbec for sharing; or keeping for a few years.
