When people rave about Malbec they generally mean the smooth, rich Argentinian stuff. But shipping small batched wines from Argentina can cause all sorts of headaches.

Then there are the well behaved French options. Which aren’t very ‘us’.

So we’d almost given up hope of a Laylo Malbec, until an unlikely sample from Spanish winemaker Lauren Rosillo blew us away… A parcel of top notch grapes, nestled on top of a steep hill, soaking up the Spanish heat, in the hands of a bona fide winemaking legend.

This is a silky smooth Malbec packed with mulberry, blueberry and fresh plum. Wine aficionados might assume the hints of cocoa and violet mean it’s an Argentinian drop... Hats off to anybody who correctly identifies it as Spanish!

Our top tip? Lauren's Malbec is perfect served a little chilled… It brings out its fruity and floral aromas beautifully.

Winemaker Lauren Rosillo is a master of his craft. With degrees in technical agriculture, agricultural engineering and oenology under his belt, it’s fair to say he’s learnt the ‘fancy footwork’ of winemaking. But the result is anything but strait-laced… His wine is generous, passionate and unselfconscious.

The design of your Lot #10: Malbec is inspired by a traditional flamenco fan (or pericón).

When you think of flamenco, you probably imagine the fiery romance of its most famous dance - the Tango. But to achieve the illusion of impulsive passion requires years of study… The top performers combine lightning-fast footwork with absolute precision, much like the skills Lauren embodies in his winemaking.
