Riglos Gran Malbec

Tim Akin 93 Points

James Suckling 93 Points

A fabulous Malbec from this artisan winery - a small group of expert winemakers who got together with the intention to produce the very best wines in Argentina.  The founders are Dario Werthein and Fabian Suffern who hired in oenologist Pulqui Rodriguez and winemaker-consultant Paul Hobbs. They then had all the attributes needed to make amazing wine - one of the very best vineyard sites in Argentina, top oeologist, top winemaker and a passion for making the finest wines possible.

"So much pure and beautiful fruit here with blackberry, blueberry and floral character. Full body, fine tannins and a long and flavourful finish. A salty and minerally aftertaste."

93 / 100 JamesSuckling.com (2012 vintage)

"... another polished performance from Juan Carlos Rodríguez Villa. Minerally and nuanced with a hint of Asian spices, it's a wine that lingers on the palate."
