Argie-Bargi

Jubilee long weekend started in style, with a beautiful bottle of Malbec from the Andes in Argentina.
One of the few things that us Brits and Argentina can agree on these days, is that they can grow Malbec.

The glass has a gorgeous malt whisky aroma, even some feet away. There are exotic spices and sandalwood on the nose too. The wine carries a certain Latin heat, with flavours of plums and honeyed fig coming through. The latter taste turns more to dark cherries, with a hint of tobacco on the finish.

The wine is Colome, 2008 and is made by the Hess Family Estate. It went perfectly with our lamb burgers and was definitely fit for a Queen.
