Jonathan’s Malbec 2019

R160.00

Prices are per bottle & sold per case of 6

TASTING NOTES:
Perfumed notes on the nose, give way to rich mulberry and dark cherry tones on the palate. The wine shows full but finely structured tannins, that although restrained now will reward well with a couple of years of bottle maturation.
