Norton Malbec 2009

So, do you get a good malbec for $10 a bottle?  Given that the price of wine is made up of around 50% tax in Australia, in substance we are talking here about a $5 wine in Argentina.  The aroma is quite attractive: jammy fruit, spice and maybe a touch of earth.  The palate though is a bit hollow around the edges, with a touch of spice.  79 points.


Abv: 13.5%
Price: $10
Would I buy it having tasted it?  No
