Utopian Block is a wine that really overdelivers. The secret is the portion of premium wine in the blend (red that carries a hefty price tag when bottled solo). Here it adds impressive length and smooth texture to this fruit and spice laden Malbec.
Welcome to Utopia. Nestled in the Maule Valley lies the subregion of Loncomilla. Close to the Andes, two rivers and the Colbun lake, it provides the perfect balance of cool nights, sun filled days and natural irrigation that allows grapes to thrive. Perfection, indeed. And it's there that the Cremaschi Furlotti family, craft their range of award winning wines. Regular 90+ point score winners, their reds sing with flavour. Like this lovely wine – from the "concentrated, generous" 2019 vintage (jancisrobinson.com), it bears all the hallmarks of top Chilean Malbec. Smooth tannic structure, rich fruit flavours with sweet spices and hints of vanilla, all balanced by a freshness. Decant and serve with your favourite burger or roasted lamb.
"From a top estate, this rich and smooth Malbec overdelivers in every glass. Excellent value!"
