This gorgeous red blazed a name for itself on the world stage when its debut vintage was awarded ‘Best Malbec of Argentina’. And this is some feat in a country that’s world renowned for the quality of its Malbec. Velvet smooth with ripe black fruit.
"Lovely Malbec. Super flavoured Malbec – all one would expect from a quality wine"
Online Review For the 2017 vintage
Great grapes, great skill – this luscious silky red will win you over. It’s made by Opi (aka Rodolfo) Sadler at Andean Vineyards. He coaxes so much richness and flavour from the fruit, his peers call him ‘the magician’. Yet he’s such a gentle, affable and modest man. On a recent visit we tried to get him to reveal how he makes wines so delicious that he has two permanently in our Top 20! He shrugged and said he simply follows the way his family has always made wine. That’s typical Opi – but not quite believable. The truth is he has a gift – even if he doesn’t know it. He crafts this great red from hand picked grapes grown high in Mendoza, then gently ages it in barrel. Enjoy with spicy sausages, pasta or beef casserole or simply on its own.

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
