Don David Reserve Malbec Michel Torino 2020

Don David Reserve Malbec is one of the most popular wines in the UK restaurant market. The use of oak in the production of this superb Malbec and the fact that the fruit is sourced from some of the highest vineyards in the world combine to produce a wine of great elegance and value. Don David Malbec Reserve really is one of the finest examples of value that we at Wineman have ever come across and we recommend you buy Don David Malbec and experience this fact for yourself.

Michel Torino's vineyards in the Calchaqui Valley, are among the highest in the world; 1,700m above sea level, basking in splendid isolation surrounded by desert and breathtaking mountain scenery. The vines get 350 days of sunshine, but at this altitude, there is a consistent breeze to cool things down. This sunny but cool climate, combined with the rocky and sandy soil is an ideal environment for growing grapes. From the 2006 vintage, their vineyards have been certified as totally organic, but Michel Torino chooses only to bottle four wines as organic. Exceptional wines from a unique part of the world.

Vinification
Prefermentative macerations during 3 days at 5C. Intense works in order to gain good structure during alcoholic fermentation using 85% of selected yeasts. Post fermentations are handled for up to a maximum of 30 days. After spontaneous malolactic fermentation, 70% of the wine is aged in small barrels of both American (40%) and French (60%) Oak for 12 months.

Viticulture
Pergola and VSP. Flood and drip irrigation. Handpicked. Yield: 8.000Kg/ha

Tasting Note
Don David Malbec 2018 has superb aromas of ripe red fruit combined with spices and toasty oak from its oak ageing. The flavours are rich and complex with a delightful mid palate. This delicious Malbec is ideal with spicy meat dishes and it has lovely round and ripe tannins that make it a delight to drink on its own or with food.

Everyday Serving Suggestion
We recommend serving this red wine at room temperature with a nice steak, especially Argentinean steak! It also pairs wonderfully with spicy meat dishes or rich paste dishes.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
