About The Pack
In the same way Australia has become synonymous with Shiraz, Argentina has become linked inextricably with Malbec.
The home of the variety may be Bordeaux, however today, the mountains of Mendoza and the surrounds produce some of the most imperious and impressive examples of the variety to be found anywhere on the planet.
The extreme altitude, the dry conditions, the particular pockets of varying soil composition just so happen to be the perfect recipe for crafting these luxurious, powerful reds. This pack gives you six great yet varied examples at a great price.
It's the best value way to get you snuggling up with a Malbec this winter!
2018 Finca La Florencia Malbec
Big red lovers, you're on to a winner here.
This is an opulent, ultra-smooth Malbec from a vineyard almost 1000m above sea level in the iconic region of Mendoza.
An Italian family from Piedmonte is behind the wine. Having immigrated to the region in the 19th century, the Cassones have established a modern premium winery in the Drummond area in the south-west of the region.
Combining this great old vine fruit with modern, polished winemaking techniques allows current owner Eduardo Cassone to produce powerful yet approachable wines that do great justice to the region.Read more about 2018 Finca La Florencia Malbec
