2019 Sylvestra Malbec - 89 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 89 pts

 "Jammy raspberry and red plum aromas are friendly but a touch soft and short on concentration. A medium-full palate is pulpy and jammy, with plum, blackberry and herbal flavors that seem tomato-influenced. Nothing on the finish moves the dial; drink now. - MICHAEL SCHACHNER"

2020 Sylvestra Malbec - 93 PTS - W&S

wine and spirits logo 250"Walter Bressia established his family winery in 2003 after working in the trade for decades. He makes this malbec in stainless steel, and it’s an aromatic feast, some slight reduction giving the wine smoky cedar and black tea scents alongside dark cherry fruit. Its flavors are lean until the scents balloon the palate with a day of air, holding a vibrant edge in the violet-perfumed blackberry finish. Some cellar time would improve it, but its detail shows at the edges of the black-fruit flavors, popped up with a basil scent. Andean wine with verve.”

2021 Sylvestra Malbec - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2021 Malbec Sylvestra from the Uco Valley is purple in color with a diaphanous but expressive fruity nose featuring fresh plum, hints of blackberry and violet over a bed of herbs. Intense in the mouth, the polished tannins are lifted up by the juicy freshness which also injects energy and tension before the fruity finish. - Joaquín Hidalgo"
