Las Estelas Malbec Cabernet Franc
Tim Atkin 92 Points
Estella Perinetti is one of Mendoza’s best wine consultants in high demand. These Las Estellas wines are her pet project, and they are excellent wines.
Going back over my tasting notes I stated “Dark ruby in colour. Mid weight on the palate, elegant, balanced, beautiful! All the elements in harmony with good oak on the finish”.
12 months in 40% new French oak, 40% second use French oak, and 20% no oak
Of all the wines being made by Estela Perinetti, this was the wine that gave us no choice, we had to say Yes Please! 60% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Franc with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon not stated on the label, this really embodies the pursuit of an holistic approach to winemaking and blending. The nose abounds with aromas of dried flowers and herbs with delightful red and black fruits, the palate gets a big hug of fruit and a kiss of fresh acidity, rounded off with subtle spice and fresh mint notes. An absolute delight.
