CHAKANA ESTATE SELECTION BLACK LABEL MALBEC 2015 is available to buy in increments of 1
This is really quite fabulous Malbec that is a big step up from the usual fare at this kind of price. Chock full of plums, berries and spice this opens up in the glass to reveal layer after layer with the complexity building over time. A quick decant will no doubt reward as would a few years tucked away.  
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Chakana Estate Selection is a line of wines which represent the best terroirs of each of our estates. Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months these wines give pre-eminence to the expression of terroir rather than oak. In every wine we try to craft a drinkable and seductive style through the careful management of our soils and grapes and in accordance with our consumers’ taste."
Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage)
"Exhibits a dense, saturated ruby/purple colour along with a sweet perfume of charcoal, white chocolate, blueberries and blackberries intermixed with hints of forest floor and spring flowers. A wine of delicacy, suppleness and full-bodied power as well as tremendous harmony and purity."
94/100 Tim Atkin (2015 Vintage)
“Combining 15% fruit from Gualtallary for the first time, this Paraje Altamira-based Malbec is getting better with every vintage. Stylish oak, floral aromas (with a dash of grassy Cabernet Franc) and tangy red berry fruit underpinned by fine tannins."
92/100 Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, July 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright, dark red with ruby highlights. Pure but subdued scents of dark raspberry, pepper, chocolate and menthol. Fine-grained, savoury and fresh; an alluring, delineated midweight with spicy and floral high notes to its raspberry and currant fruit flavours. The peppery quality carries through the wine and perks up the finish. The tannins are firm but harmonious. This impeccably balanced, structured wine finishes with firm but harmonious tannins and subtly palate-staining spicy length."
