Las Estelas

Estela Perinetti makes it very clear when she says: “We are not just Malbec”. To be very honest, however, if there were only wine from this very exciting producer, we would still want to bring it in to the UK. It’s a belter!

Again, we are not talking about a ‘showy’, gutsy wine full of bravado. On the contrary, this can be characterised by its sensitivity and precision. There is beautiful purity of fruit, and everything is judged perfectly leaving a sense that Malbec is capable of truly great things even amongst the most dissenting of voices. Fermentation in Stainless steel with 100% malolactic; aged in French oak for 12 months – 30% first use, 30% second use, 40% unoaked. Stunning!
