|Region||Argentina, Mendoza, Lujan de Cuyo|
Garnet black color. Bright, attractive, creamy aromas of berry buttercream, roasted nuts, and caramelized smoked bacon with a satiny, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, amusing, medium-length caramel apple, delicate spice, toffee, and cedar finish with fine, silky tannins and light oak. An attractively juicy and easy drinking Malbec that is sure to please.
The 2017 Alberti 154 Malbec was produced with grapes from ten to 15 different vineyards in the classical zone of Luján de Cuyo. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and was kept with the fine lees for 12 months. 2017 was a very low yielding year, and they produced 60,000 bottles when they normally do 100,000. It feels very young and primary, with good ripeness, clean fruit aromas and a juicy palate with very fine tannins. Really very good. It was bottled in April 2018.
