The classic Malbec aromas of ripe plum and violets are evident in the nose, with hints of vanilla. The beauty of the Malbec in Argentina is its ability to combine a rich, weighty mouth feel with a soft silkiness normally associated with lighter wines. Elsa Malbec takes the promise of the nose through to the palate, with pleasing fruit that mimics the aroma. The soft, supple palate leads to a lingering finish.
Elsa Malbec is the perfect accompaniment to a wide range of foods, such as salmon or other flavorful fish, pork and beef.
The 2011 Elsa Bianchi Malbec comes from old vines and the quality of the vineyard shows. It has a crisp blackberry and raspberry leaf nose that is clean, brusque and fresh, while the palate offers chunky red berry fruit that is simple and mouthfilling. This is an easy drinking but thoughtfully made Malbec at a basement price. Returning 20 minutes later and tasting it blind, it actually opens beautifully. This is great value.
