Don David (Argentina) 2020 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

91 Points - James Suckling
"Blackcurrant, violet-essence, pine and tobacco-leaf aromas. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins. Sleek and fresh. Drink or hold."

A variety that often plays second fiddle to Malbec in Argentina, but this voluptuous wine from Salta in north west Argentina is not to be overlooked. The (very) sunny Calchaqui Valley - the vineyard gets 350 days of sunshine a year - is where the vineyards are located, 70% of the wine is aged in oak barrels giving the body a richness and vanilla oak character whilst primary flavours of blackberries, Morello cherry and pepper and a nice roundness of feel are contributed by the remainder aged in stainless steel.

Fantastic reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from Michel Torino. Made with one goal in mind: creating the best wine from the best grape selection from the most incredible terroir. Located 1700 metres above sea level, the Cafayate Valley creates stunning wines with it's unique alpine climate. Aged in French and American Oak, this wine is everything you are looking for in top flight Cabernet Sauvignon - sophisticated and complex with a long elegant finish. This wine is unbelievable buying.

Don David (Argentina) 2020 Reserve Syrah

91 Points - Tim Aitkin
 
Beautiful reserve Syrah from the Michel Torino reserve range of Don David. This wine is all about intensity. The colour is crimson red, profound with purple borders. The aroma is full of spicy notes, cassis and clove. Vanilla aromas persist at the end. A fruity mouth, full of cassis with round and sweet tannins. The barrel spell contributes with warming vanilla notes.

The Don David Reserve Tannat has firm tannins and is full of character. This wine is a fantastic representation of the terroir to be found in Cafayate. The palate shows lots of dark chocolate and smooth flavours with a firm, pleasant finish.

Don David (Argentina) 2021 Chardonnay

The Don David range are the flagship wines of the Bodega El Esteco estate named in homage to the winery founder David Michel.

Terroir: Each selection in the Don David range is sourced from entirely estate owned vineyards throughout the Cafayate Valley. Vineyards sit at elevations well above 3,000 feet with many sitting above 6,000 feet. The power of the sun at these elevations combined with very little moisture or pests leads to wines of unique purity and concentration.

Intense aromas of apple, pineapple, tropical fruits and honey. On the palate, the wine is lush with pear, apple and toasted bread flavors. The wine shows balanced acidity and a clean finish with nutty hints. This great summer sipper will pair well with fish and chicken.

This Chardonnay gets better everytime we taste it...Beatifully balanced.

Don David (Argentina) 2021 Reserve Torrontes

92 Points - Descorchados

Torrontes is THE white wine of Argentina and this is a sublime example of the variety.  The colour is intense and bright yellow with golden edges. It has delicate aromas with flower presence, mainly roses. Orange notes blend together with toasted bread due to the touch of oak. The taste is pure finesse and elegance with a hint of the exotic. Good acidity with the freshness of citrus. 

This wine matches well with Asian food of course, but also try it with smoked meats and seafood.  It is a wonderfully versatile wine.

"Brooding and seductive, the bouquet shows dark fruit richness with charcuterie, vanillin oak and cake spice notes, leading to a concentrated palate displaying refinement as well as firm
