Top drop under $20… Argentinian Malbec for $19.99

People often ask whether it’s really worth spending a little (or a lot) more to taste and enjoy a better wine and here’s a bottle that clearly shows it most certainly can be.

2015 El Esteco Don David Reserve Malbec $19.99 14% ABV

4 stars

This juicy Malbec from Argentina is absolutely outstanding value for money for $20 and shows what great Malbec is all about – dark, dry, full bodied and rich but also – surprisingly – accessible with its ripe berry fruit flavours. It’s a stunner for $20. Awesome buying from Argentina.

This wine drinks beautifully right now and will also age superbly too for 9 to 10 years.
