Finding a Malbec of true class isn’t easy these days. Many are stuffed full of American oak to give big vanilla aromas while others are simply dilute and characterless. This is proper Malbec with just the right balance between fruit and oak, a full and generous palate and all at an affordable price. High quality Malbec grown in three cool, dry, high altitude vineyards is fermented in new French oak for 8 months giving a rich yet well-rounded wine.

Bodega Toneles Tonel 46 Reserve Malbec is a big wine of great refinement and culture. It starts with full-on aromas of black fruit, tinged with hints of vanilla. The palate is luscious and generously filled with rich blackcurrant notes. The finish is full yet soft, with ripe and supple tannins countering the dark berry flavours.
