2012 Legends Malbec Reserve

$26.50

Categories: , Tags: ,

A richly aromatic nose of wood smoke, peppery spice and red cherry introduces a rich and lively river of sour cherry and wisps of passionfruit streaking across the palate with great élan. This is medium bodied and textured showcasing persistent purity of fruit and a lingering, lip-smacking finish and aftertaste. Give it a go with well-seasoned, grilled-rare striploin. (Vic Harradine)

Can you thank Legends enough for holding on to this Lincoln Lakeshore bottle for just the right amount of time so we can now benefit inside this optimum drinking window. At 23.95 it’s a steal, a medium-rare bite of well-aged rib eye in a glass with dusty, sour and beautifully funky character. The 700m position from the lake in a perfect sheltered site of deep clay and beneath the heavy atmosphere works just right for malbec (planted in 2001), but also syrah and petit verdot. Great acidity and fine melted tannins, two times liquorice and bokser. Umami malbec from ontario from winemaker Serge Papineau. Drink 2018-2020. Tasted February 2018.
90 Points.
