We were invited by a friend-couple yesterday, both of them are working in the hotel industry. This sometimes gives them great occasions for private wine-buying:
We had an exceptional Malbec Estrella Lujan 1977 from Weinert. This wine caught a rating of 19/20 P. in our leading wine-mag "vinum", so we were really anxious to this bottle:
This wine was in the big wood cask until 1998! Harmonious acidity and alluring sweetness on the palate,plum and cedarwood flavours, incredibly deep and smoky ultralong finish. Crazy, unusal wine, not comparable with any other Malbec I've ever tasted. I'd rate it at 92 P.
