Vicentin Blanc de Malbec
Vicentin make extraordinarily good wines from Malbec. This is one of them – but it is an unusual Malbec in that it is a white wine that shows fresh peach, raspberry, and strawberry characteristics. It has ever so slight a shade of pink on the rim but is still classified as a white wine.
The wine has spent a period of 6 months in new American oak barrels giving it weight, a creamy texture and a delicate toastiness. The free-run first press juice is used after a gentle pressing. This gives the wine that slight reflection of pale pink in the appearance with the profile being decidedly fresh. Only 4 producers make a white wine from Malbec (that we know of) and only 2 of them export to the UK – here is one of them, decidedly the best, we think.
It is a great wine for the Malbec drinker in the mood for something a little bit different.see less
