Why do we love this wine?

Mendoza’s master of malbec, Hevré J Fabre, returns with none other than his flagship wine. Aged in 100% new French oak, this is not for the faint-hearted - not quite a tooth-tinting tannin titan but not meek, either. Tannins are full and drying, sure, but also soft and smooth, tamed by a dark-fruited core of berries, cocoa and balancing acidity. This is overlaid with pretty florals and herbaceousness that only seem to add to its overall density and power. It certainly does remind you that Fabre’s roots were in Bordeaux - it’s a nod to the malbec-based black wines of Cahors. Savoury through and through but rounded out by distinctively punchy high altitude Mendoza fruit. Approachable, but much to think about, too. Over a fat steak, of course.
