Filus Malbec Reserve Uco Valley 2013
This is a serious Malbec with an impressive profile. Grapes come from only the best vines of the vineyard, between 40 to 60 years old, bringing an impressive array of complexity and flavour. Further aging in French oak barrels for a year intensifies this flavour making this wine very compelling.

Deep ruby red in colour with hints of purple on the rim of the glass. The aromas are intense with raspberry, plum and licorice mingling together. On the palate, there are enveloping, sweet and strong tannins as well as lingering spicy sensations, both sweet and black pepper. The finish is of blackcurrant, dark chocolate and coffee. Its oak aging has enhanced the complexity of this wine, and softened the texture.
Awarded 92 by Tim Atkin.
Awarded Silver Medal at Sommelier Wine Awards.
Andre Luis Martins of The Cavalry and Guards Club found 'baked red fruits and green leaf, herbal aromas', while team leader Olivier Marie noted its 'intense, slightly underripe fruit with cinnamon baking spices, a violet floral side but fresh minty notes'.
