Wine News & Reviews

2016 Nuna Estate Malbec - 92 PTS - Descorchados

descorchados2018 logo"Considerable the effort required to achieve freshness in a warm place like Agrelo, where generally the fruit is dark and the flavors, sweet. Manifesting red fruits, and above all earthy notes and a firm and sinewy texture. A different facet of a classic region. 80% of the wine is aged in concrete tanks, the remainder in used oak barrels."

2016 Nuna Estate Malbec - 92 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"Confirming the shift in style at Chakana, away from oak and higher alcohol towards more elegant, refined Malbecs, this is floral and subtle, sustained by acidity and complemented rather than overwhelmed by vanilla spice. Sappy and refreshing. 2017-22"

2017 Nuna Estate Malbec - 88 PTS - WA

wa88"The 2017 Nuna Estate Malbec was produced with grapes from Agrelo. Fifty percent of the wine matured in oak barrels for eight months, and the rest was kept in tank. Most of the 2017s have nicely integrated oak, as is the case here, along with some fine-grained tannins and shy varietal character. 240,000 bottles produced."

2017 Nuna Estate Malbec - 92 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"Blended from lots of different plots in Chakana’s Agrelo holdings, this is a great value Malbec that has backed off on both the oak and the alcohol in recent years. Perfumed and well balanced, it’s an elegant, refined red with a streak of greenness adding freshness to the finish. 2019-24"
