If you like your reds with a bit of vanilla goodness to them then this 50/50 blend of Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon is well worth a try and fantastic value for money… A bright ruby coloured wine with ripe blackcurrant raisin fruit, vanilla and white chocolate aromas. Rich concentrated Blackcurrant leads the attack on the palate; rich enough to balance the impressive amount of structure this wine has… High tannins with a boatload of crunchy grip to them; balanced with a clean acidity that ties it all together and keep things ticking along. It manages to be both fresh and palate filling. The Blackcurrant softens out for the finish with a pastel chalky minerality, leaving a surprisingly clean mouth feel ready for more of the same. Perfect curry wine for £7.99 a bottle (with 2 bottles in your case) from Majestic Wines.
