The wine, simply put,
 

On the Eye: Deep garnet red colour

On the Nose: Woody, raspberry

On the Tongue: Fresh, light, raspberries 

Best Enjoyed: Roast lamb, duck

 

And for a more robust read, 

This natural red wine is more fresh and light style of Argentinian Malbec.

Food match: Roast lamb with rosemary jus or duck

Aromas of raspberry tart and pencil shavings. There is a soft, supple entry, leading to a dryish medium body with good balance and purity.

Organic Malbec from Argentina with no added sulphites has deep garnet colour. The finish brings to mind a chocolate-covered roasted almond with hints of earthy heirloom tomato blossom. The palate has chewy, juicy tannins.
