CRACKING ARGENTINE MALBEC! 5 STARS (93/100)
El Payador is a contemporary and fruit driven Argentinian Malbec created in partnership with third generation Mendoza winemaker Jorge Daniel Falasco.
The wine is sourced from a single high altitude vineyard at over twelve hundred metres above sea level and primarily matured in season French oak.
Deep violet red in colour with bright crimson highlights. A ripe and expressive nose of cherries, raspberries and fresh citrus with subtle notes of spicy oak. The palate is medium bodied with vibrant red berry flavours framed by rounded tannins and savoury complexity. An impressively long, dry finish. Perfect with a protein hit like a chargrilled rib-eye with a peppercorn sauce. 12.5% abv.
