Malbec Sin Sulfiti Familia Cecchin, Zero added sulphur Malbec, rare and unusual flavours, fascinating vibrancy, not the usual Argy Malbec! The new Cecchin Malbec is again made with no added sulphur. Natural yeast and the non-interventionist approach of the wine maker make for a Malbec that has more of a hint of something French about it and as a result is very food friendly. Delicious red and outstanding value for this little natural gem.

At Bodega Cecchin, they play Rugby and make wine.

...although not at the same time. In these parts the oval ball and grapes like Carignan are revered as in areas of the Corbieres and Fitou. Although the origin of the Cecchin family is Italy having emigrated to Argentina in 1910. In 1959 Jorge and Pedro Cecchin fulfilled a dream and bought 11 hectares of vines in Mendoza and the current now much larger estate is run by their grandson Oscar Alberto. They are 100% organic in the vines and also use biodynamic practice in some areas although not all. Ferments are with wild yeast and sulphur use is kept to the bare minimum if at all, (although the 'Sin Sulfiti' Malbec wasn't made in 2014). These are really characterful wines, not the usual Argentinian fruit bomb, full of vitality and vinosity, give em a try, they are lovely.

    5.0

    This is a really interesting Malbec. Lighter and fruitier than expected but with the most extraordinary finish which gives you a hint of something like beef dripping. Slips down very easily indeed, and far too good for the price.

    As the one line description provided above says, “unusual flavours, fascinating vibrancy”, this really sums up this wine. Five star rating is based on quality for the price.

    We were pleasantly surprised by this mature Malbec with great depth. Oak flavor was unexpected but thoroughly enjoyed. Will be ordering again!

    5.0

    A soft, fruity red, with a mellow hint of oak. Very drinkable. Outstanding value for money. So good I’m tempted to write a bad review to put others off buying so my husband and I can drink the lot!

    4.0

    Easy to drink but with lots going on in the glass. Intriguing and powerful.

  6. Stark

    5.0

    Not usually one for Malbec but went for this on the recommendation of a friend and it was truly superb. Something French and funky about it with ever expanding notes of depth. You just fall into this wine, Deeply. Will definitely buy again if there is any left.
