Today I will be celebrating #malbecargentino on the occasion of #malbecworldday @winesofarg.

While the grand tasting will be in the evening at the Embassy of Argentina, here I am sharing a picture of one of the several #malbec wines that I tried out during my visit to #argentina in March 2017.

#This #GranMascota Malbec 2012 from #lamascota vineyards #ucovalley was suggested to me by the #sommelier of #LodeJoaquinAlberdi (JA), the best wine store in #palermosoho #buenosaires #argentina🇦🇷.
-
Winner at several international wine competitions, this full-bodied Malbec has ripe fruit and good density on the palate. Tannins are smooth and the wine finishes on an umami and peppery note. A great value for money wine.
-

Looking forward to drinking many more Malbecs today. Look out for my reviews and recommendations.

Sunday Wine.

Olivier Leflaive Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chatenière 2013.
-
Maybe not as famous as it’s neighbour Montrachet, yet AOC Saint-Aubin in the southern part of Côte de Beaune produces some good wines, both red and white. However its white wines are more well known and renowned for their elegant freshness and balance. This is from La Chatenière, one of the 16 Premier Cru climats of Saint-Aubin.
-
Wine started off with sharp racy acidity which soon settled down and the mouthfeel became smooth. Citrus with slight spicy hints of pepper, green almonds and touch of hazelnuts. On the nose lovely white flower aromas and orange zest.
-
Just falls a little short on length but reflects all the beauty of the limestone, marl & clay terroir.

There is something about Etna wines that gets you hooked from the first sip. I guess it’s the extreme climate and volcanic soil which brings out the amazing nuances.

Ordered a bottle of Tenuta Delle Terre Nere Etna Rosso 2016 at the recommendation of #sommelier Rakesh Awaghade of The Oberoi New Delhi, to go with my dinner at the recently opened Chinese restaurant #Baoshuan @oberoinewdelhi @oberoihotels @tenutaterrenere @rakesh.ae.
-

#pinotnoir like, this wine is a blend of #nerellomascalese (95%) and #nerellocappuccio (5%) from 5-50 year old vines. It sees one month in steel and 16 months in #frenchoak before being released.
-
A young, elegant, fragrant wine with fine tannins, superb minerality and a haunting complexity that long remains with you.
-
Thanks Rakesh for suggesting this one. Must congratulate you for the fantastic pricing.

Could do with a cup of French press coffee right now.
Throwback to a lazy afternoon @theprojectcafegoa.

Relaxed Sunday with the girls at Irish House Nehru Place. Enjoyed the selection of beers esp Hobgoblin & Shepherd Neame.
Though there is nothing ‘Irish’ about it but the place does have a nice ambience and some decent pub food. A good spot to chill with friends.
Check out their 1+1 deals and long happy hours. @theirishhouseindia @hobgoblin_beer @shepherdneame
