From the “best vineyard in the world” according to Wine Industry Advisor, this 95-point Malbec is an absolute steal right now. Fermented with skins in concrete and aged for eight months, the purity of flavor untouched by wood is a delight. Blackberry and blueberry mingle with herbal notes and distinctive minerality in a wine of terrific structure and acidity. So much bang for the buck here!

James Suckling

Lots of blackberry and blueberry character with stone and dried mint. It’s fermented with skins in concrete and aged there for eight months. This no-wood red is a joy.

Wine Advocate

The 2019 Concreto Malbec was produced with a selection of very stony soils, while the Polígonos is more of a village blend. They ferment with 100% full clusters but avoid the carbonic maceration, looking for the expression of very early-harvested grapes and looking for texture. This is very precise and balanced, pure, not overripe but textured. They like a faint note of blood and iron, and it's austere and serious. They do a short maceration to avoid extraction and to show the (mineral) backbone of the wine.
