This Malbec from Argentina is a full blooded red wine with ripe dark fruits of plum, blackcurrant and leather with a warming, spicy edge. It is ideal with red meats and in particular any with a bit of spice. A fillet steak with peppercorn sauce springs to mind!

Wine Makers

Crios Malbec. by Susana Balbo

The most recognized and well-known female oenologist in Argentina, Susana Balbo has been instrumental in the transformation of quality table wines in Argentinean viticulture. She is best known for her innovation and progressive spirit in developing wines with unique character and quality, and she is the first Argentinean oenologist ever hired as a consultant by European wineries.

 

At Dominio Del Plata, her family's winery in the famed Mendoza wine region of Argentina, Susana crafts her own signature label wines. They embody the complexity of various grapes along with her creativity as an oenologist to produce fine wines that express prestige, power and finesse. For her Crios label, which means "offspring" (as in children), Susana selected a word to express the notion that these are wines given loving care and attention deserving of her children.

 

The three hands on the label, inspired by a Mayan artifact, represent Susana and her two children. By definition, Crios is to be enjoyed while still young and vibrant. Crios wines are produced under Dominio del Plata's code of sustainable agriculture.

Press Reviews

"All Crios wines are phenomenal value, worth buying by the case." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"*****" Gold Medal, Decanter Magazine World Wine Awards 2013

"Leafy, peppery, floral. Mashed cherries. Good fruit juice core, spicy breadth, persistent and appealing. Dense currant and cassis on the nose. Characteristic and interesting." Gold Medal, Argentina Wine Awards

"Soft in texture, ripe in flavours, but with an inner energy made of vibrant acidity and generous violet notes, this is a pure expression of Malbec, ready now to refresh any barbecue." Decanter

I first sampled this wine when the wine maker visited the store and I was compelled to bring my wife back straight away so she could sample it also. Packed with fruity flavours this full bodied wine is now a regular in our house.
