Los Haroldos Estate Malbec 2021
We first tasted the Los Haroldos Estate Malbec back in 2015 and it still sets a great benchmark in quality for Malbec at this price point. Ripe red and black fruits, smoke and chocolate all show on the forward and intense nose. The palate has elegant tannins and subtle acidity that all underpin the brambly fruit, sweet smoke and savoury meatiness on the finish.
The wine is produced by Bodega Los Haroldos, whose parent company, Falasco, is one of of Argentina's longest established wine estates. Today, the fourth generation family members continue the hard work started back in 1939 when Haroldo Santos Falasco used to cycle through the streets of his small hometown of Chacabuco, 200km west of Buenos Aires, selling his wines from the basket on the front.
