Four Stars - Joelle Thomson  (2016 Vintage)
"Malbec is the red that defines Argentina with its big, bold, intensely dark fruit flavours. It’s an outstanding wine at this price – offering not only value, but fabulous intensity in flavour, colour, aroma and wow factor." Joelle Thomson  

Four Stars - Warren Barton  (2016 Vintage)
"Juicy rare steak screams out for wines like this one from beneath the Andes in northern Argentina. And so does anyone with a taste for malbec that is awash with blackberries spiked with chocolate and seasoned with pepper. A concentrated, cuddly red that represents great value for money." Warren Barton

Michel Torino Coleccion range expresses a prominent, "fruit forward" style, with pure varietal character and vineyard typicity. The goal is to produce elegant and complex wines for their category. 

Each of the Coleccion range are sourced from entirely estate owned vineyards throughout the Cafayate Valley. Vineyards sit at elevations well above 3,000 feet with many sitting above 5,000 feet. The power of the sun at these elevations combined with very little moisture or pests leads to wines of unique purity and concentration. 

Each wine in the Coleccion range presents the true character of the varietal. The wines are produced in a young, juicy style with minimal oak influence and just 5 months of aging in the cellar prior to bottling and release.

The colour is crimson red, intense with sharpening black borders. Distinct plum aromas typical of this grape enhanced by cherry notes, rosemary hints and subtle chocolate traces due to its oak spell. Mouth-Filling plumy fruit . Sweet attack with firm and fine tannins. Balance with notes of cassis, hints of vanilla and a long round finish.

We found this very drinkable after about 30 minutes breathing time. Will certainly keep some as standby for almost any occasion.

This 2015 Malbec shows great promise and good to see that they have adopted a screw cap, giving me confidence that storing it for a few years will be rewarding.

Have just opened my last bottle of 2007. And it's just come right! What was a little rough edged has now mellowed out and it's become a silky, earthy , berry fruity delight. While I feared the closures may have been borderline for keeping this length of time, I've been very pleasantly surprised. What a shame I'm going to have to wait another 4 years before the current vintage is going to be drinking at it's best! This bottle at this price rates 5 stars for me.

I really enjoyed this Malbec from this Estate. This top notch winery seems to do fine things with all it's grapes to me. Whilst this doesn't compare to say, the Altimus, it is a fine example of Malbec wine with dark colour, fruit flavours and a nice pepper finish. Eat it with any Red meats and you will enjoy. 85/100 IMHO

A couple of years ago, in Mendoza, Argentina, I learned how beautiful a full bodied Malbec can be. Michel Torino ticks all the boxes for me. Goes great with rare roast beef/steak , and for me, almost anything else as well. Value for money, brilliant.

Hard to separate this and the Cuma organic Malbec from Michel Torino. I would personally go for the organic version but this is a very good value for money Malbec and worth buying as a drink now wine. We had this wine with chilli mussels, pepperoni and smoked salami as a pre dinner starter, yum.

Incredible value for money.   Soft and spicy, with the characteristic inky Malbec colour.   This is becoming one of our house wines as it enhances almost any food (not fish!).

There's something about the Malbec grape that just speaks to me, and Michel Torino obviously speak the same language.  They have bottled such depth and intensity here as to take your breath away.   A fabulous wine and very good value buying.  4****
