“Finca Decero’s evocatively named cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and a little Tannat is now into its second edition. The Petit Verdot

provides lots of structure here, giving backbone to the sweet, succulent dark berry fruit. Fresh acidity cleans the palate and lengthens the finish.”

Selections are made because they stand out from the crowd in some way. Until now, none has stood out for their use of augmented reality. “Finca Decero in Mendoza evidently understand that to really grab a drinker's attention, they need a story that is more memorable and more stirring than a simple claim. The Owl and The Dust Devil has got just such a story – and a brilliant way of telling it...in an industry where marketing and innovation is often an afterthought at best, this wine stands out for making the story of the wine so memorable. The wine itself is a blend of 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32%

Malbec, 19% Petit Verdot and 10% Tannat aged in 40% new French oak barriques for 18 months. The vineyards stand at 1,050 metres (3,500 feet) above sea level in the Agrelo subdistrict of Mendoza. At 14.5% alcohol it is typical of full-bodied Argentine reds, with sweet vanilla spice and candied black fruits,

velvet tannins and a touch of leather and liquorice on the finish. While the blend is perhaps slightly unusual, the style is very familiar and should appeal to any fan of Argentine Malbec or other similarly robust New World reds.”

GOLD LIST: 2015 The Owl & The Dust Devil, Remolinos Vineyard

“A ‘full-bodied and fresh’ addition to the Gold List, began an impressed Mattia Scarpazza of Petersham Nurseries, going on to describe ‘sweet baked notes of spiced black cherry and raspberry’. Carolina Seibel of Portland Restaurant noted signs of ‘development, with red and dark fruits, some leafy and orange peel notes on the nose, leading to candied lingonberry fruit with very fine, intense tannins’. Enamoured of its ‘complex layers of cigar box, tobacco and earthy notes’, Sahar Gharai of La Dolce Vita Wine Lounge (California) saw this as a perfect match for grilled entrecôte.  Gold List, Sommelier Wine Awards 2018”
