Below, you will find the Don Cristobal wines that were recognized by Tim Atkin as well as their tasting notes:
- Triana 2012 – 91 Points
“Triana marries Malbec with 30% Shiraz and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and is the densest, most concentrated wine in the Don Cristóbal range, with 70% new wood, sinewy tannins, plush blueberry and liquorice fruit and a mineral finish”.
- Punta Paramo Malbec 2018 – 90 Points
“Made from grapes grown on sandy soils in Ugarteche, this well-priced, lightly oaked Malbec is typical of the improving quality here under Diego Medina and Lucia Espejo. Floral, fine and mineral edged, with raspberry and blueberry fruit and a pinch of vanilla spice”.
- Danzón Red Blend 2018 – 90 Points
“Lightly and sensitively wooded, Danzón is a cuvée of Malbec with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, all sourced from Ugarteche in the southern part of Luján de Cuyo. Fresh, balanced and textured, this is another impressive wine from Don Cristobal”.
- Cristobal 1492 Viognier 2018 – 90 Points
“Part of an impressive, good value range from this improving bodega, this oral, peachy, cream, unoaked Viognier from Rivadavia in eastern Mendoza has appealing texture, balancing acidity and a dry finish”.
