2012 Bodegas Tonel Malbec, Mendoza
£5.99, 14, Lidl
Tasted at: Lidl Tasting
Hard to beat for its sheer exuberance and gluggability, this is a brilliantly priced Argentinean Malbec with classic violet perfume, a touch of smoky oak and oodles of plum, blackberry and liquorice fruit. Made for a juicy steak, but this is smooth enough to work with spring lamb, too.
