ACUMAMalbec, and particularly Argentinian Malbec is known for being rich, dark and full-bodied with red fruit flavours, woody notes and even a hint of chocolate. If this style is for you, try another grape, known as Monastrell in Spain. Ego Bodegas ‘Acuma’ 2017 will give you the richness and tannin you are after to replace your beloved Malbec. It also has Dark cherry red, vigorous. Intense aromas of red and black fruit with a sultry spiciness. The taste is rich and soft, almost velvety. The tannins are fussy and despite the great ripeness, there is plenty of freshness to  keep the wine in balance. This is a Southern Spanish gem from a family-run wine estate that won’t disappoint Malbec-lovers. Currently on offer at €14.95
