Here’s a great deal on six bottles of Alturo malbec, reduced to £35.94 at Majestic. According to the retailer, “convoluted wine shipping laws” mean that, while this bottle comes from the Uco Valley, an Argentinian winemaking hotspot, it’s labelled as a generic Mendoza malbec and so is a bit of a steal. Using grapes from high altitude (3,500 feet above sea level, this case) means intense flavours from high sun exposure, but with freshness and a silky smoothness aided by lower nighttime temperatures.
