Gouguenheim Valle Escondido 2009 (Mendoza)

Tasted 24/03/11 with Sara, Tom and Alex. 13.5% ABV. £9 UK Majestic. The relatively new Bodegas Gouuenheim is producing some interesting wines and this one has just become available in Majestic. This is a good middle-level, early drinking Argentinian malbec. Lovely inky purple in the glass, still a little closed on the nose - plums and some dark fruits and a hint of spice and violets. Rich and fruity in the mouth, there's some nice silky tannins with probably just the right amount of oak. From 2011, 16 / 20
