Graffito Malbec 2016
|Region||Argentina, Mendoza, Agrelo|
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Malbec is from the same vineyards as the 2015 and is produced in more or less the same way. So, what I saw was the effect of the cold and rainy 2016 vintage, which produced fresher wines, with less alcohol. 2016 was an extraordinary vintage with a lot of rain, and it was a year that pushed many for a change of style, a year to learn. López did shorter macerations and used less oak, and it shows in the wine. Quite a change and a step up from the 2015 I tasted next to it. Here, the wine comes through much fresher than the 2015, and it has floral and fruit notes. 20,000 bottles were filled in October 2017.
