Alfa Crux Malbec 2011, O. Fournier

£38.50 per bottle

About this wine

O. Fournier’s flagship Malbec and an absolutely world class offering from winemaker José Spisso. Lashings of parma violet, lavendar, black cherry and cured meat fill the glass and palate. Seemingly weightless richness and background freshness across the palate lend exceptional poise to the cuvée. Built for the long haul but so accessible now, this is surely one of the single greatest Malbec wines produced in Argentina today.
