Another great release from the powerhouse team at Quarisa, and this malbec is a powerhouse in itself. We fell in love and so will you. An intense, yet juicy upfront palate that is seriously generous with good old fashioned drinkability. Lush, rich and lashings of blueberry and plum fruits, this is a real showstopper. It comes highly recommended.
The winery writes "Q Malbec is a powerful dark red and full-bodied wine packed with fruit. Q Malbec has notes of dark plums, dark cherries, violet and dark chocolate."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "A dark purple and ruby hued appearance leads to a bouquet of blue berries and plum, some darker cherry and milk chocolate. A whisper of spice and mild oak scents layer in a ubtle complexity and charm. Core fruit flavours that reflect the boquuet drive the palate along with a silky texture then contrasting chalky-ish tannins. A balanced even acid line brings further contrast and carries the dark berry fruit flavours to the back palate finishing with black currnand. Balanced, well made and ready to drink from 2022 through 2025."
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Brightly fruited and instantly appealing, the wine shows Black Doris plum, blueberry, floral, chocolate and spicy oak aromas, followed by a flavoursome palate displaying ripe fruit intensity backed by velvety texture and plush tannins, making it highly enjoyable."
