Atamisque, Serbal Malbec. 2012
When fruit is this good, so pure and fresh, so expressive and direct, why hamper it with oak, especially cheap, quick fix oak? Atamisque is one of a growing number of wineries that prefers to use oak only for upper level wines, opting for the 'pure fruit' ethos here. This, however, is not a lesser wine in any respect.
