Tapiz Malbec

Tapiz Malbec 2015 - 88 Pts - Wine Enthusiast

Tapiz Malbec is a delicious Argentine red wine with that typical powerful Malbec fruit. Big and puchy on entry, quite smooth with the acidity and oak in balance. Ideal for everyday drinking at this price. Malbec is very much in fashion and there are many cheap ones floating about in the supermarkets but this one from Tapiz is in a completely different league.

Bodega Tapiz are one of the most exciting winemakers in Argentina producing some excellent wines.

This Tapiz Malbec is one of our best sellers with a loyal following as it is consistently good every vintage.
