Wine AdvocateThe grapes for the 2015 Críos Malbec are sourced exclusively in the Valle de Uco, from Los Chacayes, Vista Flores, Los Árboles and Gualtallary Sur to be precise. This cold and wet vintage helped achieve the drinkability and freshness they aim for in this wine. It fermented in stainless steel and part of the wine matured in well-seasoned, neutral French oak barrels for nine months. There are some toasty notes and a core of perfectly ripe berries. The palate is fresh and balanced, quite tasty. A Críos with less makeup. 380,000 bottles produced.
