The 2017 Críos Malbec saw a change in the range, where the oak staves have been discontinued and only 30% percentage of the wine aged in well-seasoned neutral oak barrels. This is perfumed and juicy, with nice ripeness and a tasty palate. It is very accessible and comes from a typical vintage in which the wine managed to maintain moderate alcohol. 350,000 bottles produced. 2017 was a low-yielding year, the second shortest in the last few years.

Violets, morello cherries, dried lavender, citrus and some herbs. Fresh and fruity on the palate with pretty acidity, juicy tannins and a succulent finish. Drink now.
