Belasco Llama Old Vine Mendoza Malbec 2016 $26 (3.5 stars)

Argentinean malbec is one of my favourite things because it’s so meaty and savoury and loaded with spicy, charred, fleshy goodness. Belasco have malbec vines that are over 100 years old growing in the Lujan de Cuyo district and the contribution that fruit makes to this wine is other-worldly. Toasty, caramelised oak combines with plum, prune and dark berry notes to create a seriously sippable wine indeed.
