Critic Robert Parker described Malbec from this Mendoza estate as “fabulous bargains”, while Tim Atkin MW said it was “a winery to watch” and awarded this wine 92 points. It's from Chakana and this is their triple-awarded, smooth blackberry rich red.
"Nice, very nice. I thoroughly enjoyed the wine and will buy it again"
Since its foundation in 2002, the Chakana estate has soared to success. It’s no accident, but thanks to hard work and a great team. Responsible for the vines is Argentina’s finest viticulturalist, Pedro Parra, while Italy’s renowned Alberto Antonini is consultant. The top grape is Malbec, which revels in the clear sunshine of Argentina, producing wine with velvety ripe fruit. Grapes for this special edition Inca Tree are grown at 1,100 metres – that's high and means that temperatures at night plummet. The result is an elegance, freshness and purity of fruit you'll find in this red. At that altitude, they can also grow the grapes organically. This is a fine dining red. Open early and enjoy with red meat dishes – from roasts to casseroles.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
