Santa Florentina, Malbec 2016 £10.50
Medium and lively, this wine is juicy and with high concentration of fruit on the palate. The flavours of blackberries, ripe cherries and plums and pure are enhanced by a tiny, yet tasty, sweet spicy note! Tannins are soft and well-integrated.

The world’s fifth-largest wine-producing nation, Argentina produces a wide range of excellent-value varietal wines (largely red, with Malbec the success story so far but also, an increasing number of delicious whites) across all price points. Since the 1990s it has benefited greatly from an influx of international investment and expertise, and while it has done well to edge its way onto the world stage it still has a way to go before completely stealing the limelight. Competition in international markets from behemoths like Australia or neighbouring Chile mean it won't be a story of overnight success for Argentina. But year on year the wines get better and more and more people fall for the charms of Argentina's structured but oh-so quaffable wines.
Famatina is a remote wine-producing valley in the La Rioja region of Argentina. This dry and dusty river area sits among the foothills of the Andes, where it is responsible for the production of fresh, aromatic white wines made from Argentina's great white grape, Torrontes. While Torrontes is by far the most important grape variety planted in Famatina, the ever-present Malbec produces excellent wines in the region as well, along with Bonarda, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc.
