The Oddbins Take

It is a lot to claim that one wine has the unmistakable character of Chile’s Maipo valley. That’s some pretty big talk. But we think that Viña Pérez Cruz can justify it with this ‘Cot’ or Malbec as it’s known over here. Sourced from a blissfully-located vineyard that captures the warm afternoon sun rays, the cool mountainous breeze blowing down off the Andes, this black-fruited behemoth captures the essence of this unspoilt land. These people have bags of confidence in their wine, it’s true, and rightly placed it is too.
