Apartado Gran Malbec in the Top 100 by James Suckling
Recently featured in the top 100 best wines of the world by Wine Enthusiast, the 2016 Apartado Gran Malbec now receives recognition from James Suckling, who placed it in the 20th position of Argentina’s Top 100 in 2019 with 97 points. In this synthesis of the best of 2019, the famous American critic highlights the increasing quality of Argentina’s premium wines, as well as their ability to express in a more subtle way the specificities of the respective vineyards and of each microclimate. This is how he describes the Apartado Gran Malbec: “This is a beautiful blend of the best malbec from the vineyards in Altamira, Gualtallary and La Consulta. Old vines, too. Its full-bodied, yet shows lightness and focus with ultra-fine tannins and a bright finish. Polished and very fine. Serious. Suckling recommends drinking this blend of malbec in 2023.
In 2018 Apartado Gran Malbec was also the wine chosen for the gala dinner served in the Golden Hall of the Teatro Colón for the leaders of the G20. It was also present at the launch of the book “Exploring the extraordinary: 100 years of Bentley Motors“, at the Detroit Marriott Troy, MI, hosted by the most prestigious car clubs in the world: the Rolls-Royce Owners Club (RROC) and the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club (RREC).
The Apartado Gran Malbec –elaborated by Mariano Di Paola and team- is undoubtedly appreciated for its excellent ratings: Descorchados Guide (97 points), James Suckling (96), Wine Enthusiast and Decanter (94), Wine Advocate-Robert Parker ( 93) and Tim Atkin (93).
