Professional Wine Reviews for Michel Torino Malbec Reserve Don David 2017

Rated 90 by Wine Spectator
Dried red fruit flavors are lively, offering a surplus of rich, dried savory herb notes. Accents of hot stone and white pepper flood the finish. Drink now through 2023.
Rated 90 by James Suckling
Violets, blueberries, mahogany and cloves. Medium body, fine tannins, lovely fresh acidity and a round finish. Drink now. #65 Top 100, 2018.

Additional Information on Michel Torino Malbec Reserve Don David 2017

Winery Michel Torino

Region: Salta

In the very northernmost part of Argentina, perilously close to the equator, lies the unique and unusual wine region of Salta. Salta, despite being so close to the equator, is something of an ideal region for vineyard cultivation and wine production, as its incredibly high altitude of up to three thousand meters above sea level ensures that the temperatures are just right for the vines to thrive. The wines produced in Salta are exceptional for their ability to express much of their unusual terroir, and in the regions of Cafayate and Molinos, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Tannat are the key red wines produced, whilst Chardonnay makes up much of the white wine of Salta. The region's wine industry is currently going from strength to strength, and the next few years or so are expected to herald plenty of new wineries opening in this fascinating part of the world.

Country: Argentina

In the dry, arid deserts of Argentina, wineries and winemakers are focusing their efforts on producing high quality wines for the world market. By experimenting with both traditional and modern methods and technologies, they have found great success with a wide variety of grapes well suited to the conditions of the country, particularly Malbec, Bonarda and Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the past decade, Argentinian wineries have continued to aim high, and this has led to a range of new wines using grape varietals not typically associated with the country. The cooler regions of Argentina are seeing more vineyards being planted with Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir varietals, something that is beginning to produce fantastic results, which are at once representative of the country's wines - with all their fruity and bold character - but are also pushing the boundaries of what we expect from a New World country.
