Wine of the Month – April 2012: Vinalba Malbec Reserva 2010 Mendoza (Majestic Wines £10.99 or £7.99 each for every 2 bottles purchased)

17 April is Malbec World Day and, in honour of this event, I have selected this Malbec from a selection of four recently tasted at my local Majestic.  Although it wasn’t the highest scorer of the four, I have selected it for sheer value for money and I recommend purchasing at least 2 bottles so that the price is just £7.99 a bottle.

Vinalba is a multi award-winning winery and this is its flagship wine. On the nose there is some smoke with a hint of tobacco alongside ripe black fruit.  On the palate there is some sweetness and a hint of vanilla from the oak with lashings of blackcurrant (14.5%).  I shall certainly be opening a bottle of this on Malbec Day when having dinner with my mother-in-law.  Now if only I can persuade her to cook some nice juicy steak!
