Ñandú Malbec comes from hillside vineyards in the Mendoza region of Argentina. Located 60 miles east of the town of San Rafael, these vineyard sites rise to 1,200 feet above sea level—an altitude that helps temper the region's warm sun, yielding grapes of exceptional balance and structure. It's a challenging area to cultivate, with desert-like conditions and frequent hail threatening crops, but the resulting wine is worth the myriad risks.
I received this Malbec in a Discovery Wine Club Selection for the month of January (Wines.com) Now on to the 4 S's - (see) dark opaque red color (sniff) faint fruit aromas, mostly cherry (sip) muted and dull fruit flavors of cherry and prunes with some spice box. Dry and alcoholic feel with a full body and a furry (dried out) mouth feel. (summarize) I didn't care for this Malbec. After first glass I wasn't looking forward to having a second. With so many good Malbec's available, I won't be re-ordering more of this one. Overall a bit disappointing.
I served my first bottle of this incredible wine at a cheese and wine evening with friends. Wow! Amazingly smooth and memorable. I ordered a case!
Good everyday wine and perfect when paired with your favorite gourmet burger. Very drinkable.
Nice taste, very smooth.
got it as part of wine club. not good.
Discovery tour wine. I drank one glass and cannot bring myself to drink another. The aftertaste is like vinegar and burnt ashes.
Received this with the Discovery Tour - couldn't drink it...down the sink! Ick! I would give it zero stars if allowed by the system.
I also received this as part of the wine of the month club. After seeing some of the other reviews, perhaps I just got a bad bottle. It smells like nail polish remover, doesn't taste much better and the aftertaste is even worse. Usually I adore Malbecs, but not this one.
First my initial impressions were plum, spicy and a slight oak finish. With that said, this wine didn't finish well and had an off flavor. At best this was an OK wine but better Malbecs exist even for the low price point.
