87 Points Wine Enthusiast (2018 Vintage)
Earthy, roasted plum and black-fruit aromas. On the palate, this Salta Malbec feels heavy and demanding. Ripe but short berry, spice and herbal flavors finish with a mix of wildness and sauvage notes.

"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
structure. Multi-layered and engaging with a long savoury finish. At its best: now to 2027."

Always a favourite with Winesale customers and staff alike, worth every cent you pay for this wine!!
The Don David Malbec and in fact across the range, offer stunning wines with superb complexity and approachability.  You may have tried a Mendoza malbec but, just sample what the Calchaqui valley has to offer.

The El Esteco wines are from Calchaquí valley, a unique region at an altitude of 1,800 meters (5,500 feet) above sea level, with its ever-present sunshine and perfect temperature range, the environment is perfect for the creation of high-end wines. The Don David range of wines are named after Don David Michel a French immigrant who came to the region and founded the El Esteco winery back in 1892. Today El Esteco is the flagship winery of the region and making its mark on the wine world.

Select grapes from older vines. 70% of the wine is aged in small barrels of both American (40%) and French (60%) Oak for 12 months.
