The 2017 Judas Malbec, Bodegas Sottano is powerful with an intense deep red/black in the glass with violet hints. The nose and palate are complex with plum, blueberry and dark cherry fruits, well-integrated oak and notes of vanilla, spice and tobacco.
Bodegas Sottano is an impeccable family estate situated in the Pedriel district of Mendoza that is run and owned by the Sottano brothers Diego, Pablo and Mauricio. It sits at 1000m altitude in the foothills of the Andes so benefiting from the warm days and cold nights typical of the region, resulting in well-balanced and perfectly ripe grapes. The wines from this estate are rich and smooth yet maintain an elegance and balance not always present in new world wines.
The Judas Malbec is the pinnacle of production at Sottano and we’re delighted to stock it in several formats (when available). The wine spends 24 months in first use oak barrels, 70% French and 30% American, and is racked every 4 months.

The 2014 vintage of this 'under the radar' Chateau is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Chateau Saint-Pierre is the smallest classed growth in Saint Julien but has a growing reputation for producing excellent, deeply coloured reds. It is part of the Chateau Gloria stable and often eclipses it's more illustrious stablemate in blind tastings. Prices are creeping up as their reputation grows but these beautifully made wines still represent good value.
