94 Points – Tim Atkin, Argentina Report
Established more than eighty years ago, Vina 1924 is one of the original Malbec vineyards of the Vistalba Valley. The 20 hectare vineyard is located at 980 meters (3,200 feet) above sea level having a thermal amplitude between day and night of about 15°C. Although the company first began by selling their harvests to noted Mendoza wineries, they started building their own facilities in 2006, releasing their first vintage in 2007. They maintain a plant density of at least 7000 per hectare. The high plant density allows having fewer clusters per plant resulting in higher concentration of aromas and flavors in each cluster.
Vina 1924 De Angeles Malbec is an elegant, concentrated red with complex aromas of red berry, plum, licorice, violet and leather. The palate opens with soft, sweet fruit notes which gain depth and intensity as they merge with fine-grained tannins and balanced acidity. The finish is subtle, savory and long with a restrained sweetness and hints of vanilla and mineral.
"From vines planted in 1924, this delivers a pure and crystal-clear expression of Malbec in the heights of Vistalba. Filled with cherry and violets aromas and charged with blackberry fruit flavours floating over a dense yet refreshing texture, this is one of the friendliest Vistalba Malbecs you might find in the market. Juice for adults" - Decanter
