536. 2016 MALBEC, El Caminito. Valle de la Puerta, Argentina
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: This is made by the estate of 'Valle de la Puerta' in the La Rioja region, where they have 150 hectares of vines and many more of olive trees. La Rioja is a warm, dry region to the north of Mendoza (viticulture only possible because of drip irrigation). The estate's total production is over 2 million litres - they are a great source for inexpensive, reliable reds
Grape Variety: 85% Malbec, 15% Bonarda; matured without wood to retain maximum freshness
Old Bridge Rating: This is a simple, robust, spicy, moderately rich Malbec - not too heavy or too oaky (as many of them are). For the price it's just great
