86 Points and Best Buy - Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Four Stars "Great value at this price" Joelle Thomson
"What more can I add to the huge, explosively fruity appeal of shiraz? Its power, intensity and bold oomph make shiraz – both generically and specifically in this wine – one of the crowd pleasers of the wine world right now. This Argentinian version is packed with black peppery flavours and warmth. Great value at this price." Joelle Thomson
Shiraz, Shiraz, Shiraz - why do we love you so much? Power, intensity, blackberry and pepper, chocolate and espresso, licorice and aniseed, juiciness and warmth. You're the all round great red wine and we can't get enough of you.
This dark, handsome Argentine Michel Torino (pronounced Me-shell Torino) is grown high up in the Andes which contributes to its intense brooding complexity. Take this wine out for a night of excitement for just $13.99
Cafayate - Valles Calchaquies - Argentina.
Deep, poor and rocky soils. Mountain watering from the Andes. A wide thermal amplitude with big differences (aproximately 22Â°C) between the minimum during the cold mornings and nights, and the maximum during sunny days. High sun exposure of about 350 sunny days a year. Dry climate with approximately 120 mm rainfall a year and an average of 15Â° humidity. The results: High concentration of colour, aromas and flavours, unique fruity character.
Michel Torino range of wines express a marked fruit style, showing a pure varietal character with traces of the unique terroir. Harvest is manual, juice goes through a pre-fermentative maceration process at cold temperatures to extract fruit and colour while softening tannic influence takes place. Finally, 30% of the wine get a delicate and subtle contribution of both American and French oak during 6 months, gaining a touch of complexity.
A deeply coloured wine with supple and expressive ruby red with violet edges. Intense blackberry, pepper aromas, savoury and meaty with licorice characters showing. The palate has flavours of prunes, chocolate and pepper made in a juicy, warm style with supple rounded tannins and a long finish.
