Finca Sophenia 'Altosur' MalbecRegular price $12.99
Finca Sophenia was founded in 1997 by Roberto Luka, who was formerly President of Wines of Argentina. Named after his partner´s daughter, Sophia and his own daughter, Eugenia, Finca Sophenia has earned its place amongst the top quality wine producers from Argentina.
The Altosur wines represent Sophenia's entry-level wines, and we find them to be some of the best values of their type in the market. So much cheap Argentinean Malbec is made a bit like processed cheese………in a factory in large batches with “less than natural” techniques. With plenty of ripe dark berries, plums, and just a kiss of oak, this full bodied and supple textured Malbec is perfect for every day consumption.
'It's fair to say that no other country delivered value in this year's DWWA to match that sent over to us from Argentina, and this saturatedly dense, dark Malbec from the prized highlands of Gualtallary makes this point admirably. It's initially beefy and purposeful in aroma, the plum and sloe fruits emerging in purer form with time in the glass or the decanter. There's admirable weight, lyricism and lift to those fruits: Gualtallery is never clumsy. Better still, in place of overt tannins and intrusive acidity there is a kind of sappy, stemmy freshness which combines the function of both texture and acidity -- and that, in fact, is the origin of the fruit's notable energy and charm. Value Best In Show wines rarely exceed the appeal you'll find here.' - Decanter - 97 points - Best in Show at World Wine Awards 2022
