Using the very best grapes, this is a dark, spiced, velvety-rich treasure rated 92pts by the great James Suckling.
The dense, luscious Waxed Bat Reserve is from remarkable winemaker Opi Sadler. He takes Cabernet and Malbec from the best, highest vineyards and ages the wine in barrel.
Waxed Bat’s hallmark velvet black fruit, taken a notch richer and deeper.

Awarded 'Best Vineyard in South America' by the IWC in 2020 and with Lifetime Achievement award too, Zuccardi is more than impressive. This is the family’s deliciously moreish mix of spicy Syrah and Malbec, with black fruit and silken tannins.

Château Lafite’s Barons de Rothschild in France and world renowned Nicolás Catena from Argentina – Bodegas Caro Aruma Malbec 2021.
Aruma brings together small batches of wine made from tiny parcels of premium Ucó Valley grapes – from Altamira, El Peral and San José – to create a fine, silky and complex blend. Hand-harvested, high grown, old-vine grapes provide outstanding quality, while the absence of any oak maturation ensures the wine shows great purity of fruit from Ucó terroir. Velvety smooth and deeply fruity with beautiful floral notes, this mouthfilling stunner is a delight from first sip to last.
James Suckling is impressed – he gives it a stellar 93pts. He also gave its 2020 vintage an impressive 92pts and commented: "Perfumed yet focused nose with lots of violets and deep but fresh blueberries. Very pure”.
Like most Argentine Malbecs (and indeed many fine French wines), it will match your finest cut of beef beautifully. Decant and pour into large glasses so that its full magnificent flavours can be suitably appreciated.
Known for its outstanding landscapes, Argentina’s Patagonia is increasingly recognised for its extraordinary wines. A pure expression of Argentina’s flagship grape, it shows intense red fruits, velvety tannins, and an elegant finish.
Like this sumptuous Malbec from the Schroeder family, named after the town of Bariloche, home to the source of several meltwater rivers that feed into the valley where the Schroeders’ vineyards lie.
