Superuco 'Gualta' 2018


Superuco is a co-fermentation of 60% Malbec with 40% Cabernet Franc all from within Gualtallary in the Uco Valley, Mendoza. The nose shows notes of blackberry jam. black currants, and chocolate cake all crusted in baking spices of nutmeg and vanilla with a touch of cracked pepper. The palate is deep garnet and purple in color and is rich with dark fruit flavors that lead to a sustained finish. Held up by strong tannins this vintage is being heralded as one of the best in the last 10 years and can definitely be laid down in a cellar to age for a while.

"Cola, vanilla and blackberry aromas include welcome notes of mint and spice that add complexity to the nose of this Malbec-Cab Franc blend from Gualtallary in the Uco Valley. A full palate is saturated but not overweight, with rough tannins that reflect the rainy conditions of 2016. Racy berry and peppery flavors finish with tannins that scratch. Serve with steak or lamb to tame the tannins. Drink through 2028." - 94 points - Wine Enthusiast
