Septima is an ambitious producer with a 306 hectare estate in Agrelo, Mendoza. This range improved with each wine, culminating in the super Syrah, which is quite lovely. A promising performance.

Séptima Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 Mendoza
Sweet ripe nose with herby-edged fruit. Palate is ripe and midweight with a herbal character. Bright, commercial. Good/very good (£5.49)

Séptima Malbec 2001 Mendoza
Pronounced herbal edge to the nose. The palate is midweight with good balance. Quite savoury in character with herby, spicy fruit on the palate, but struggles to make a real impression. Very good (£6.99)

Séptima Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 Mendoza
Chewy herbal blackcurrant fruit dominates, with a nice savouriness and good acidity. Some chocolatey richness. Modern but balanced, this is appealing. Modern but balanced. Very good+ (£6.99)

Séptima Syrah 2001 Mendoza
Vivid purple colour. Very forward sweet liqouricey fruit on the nose: clean and pure. The palate is lush and rich with sweet berry fruit. Good definition and nice acidity. Very good/excellent (£6.99)
