Tipping’s Tipples: Wine of the Week – the gold medal winner that’s under £8

wotw-vin-malbec

Vinalba Malbec Reservado de la Familia 2012

Great value at the offer price, this Malbec was a gold medal winner in last year’s Decanter World Wine Awards. It is made with fruit from vines high up in the Valle de Uco, Argentina.

Ideal if you don’t like your red wines too dry, it oozes flavours of juicy berries and plum, with dark chocolate, floral notes, a lick of vanilla and some mouth-filling tannins.

It will go well with any red meat but best of all with a juicy steak.

£7.99 down from £9.99 at Morrisons (until July 5)
