Delicado Food and Wines in McMahon's Point, Sydney is one of those special places that makes you feel as though you've been transported to another part of the world. Ben Moechtar's Spanish tapas restaurant, deli and bottle shop could easily be in Barcelona...or Buenos Aires for that matter. First, the relaxed, social environment and the food are fantastic. And as one of the most highly qualified and knowledgeable sommeliers in Australia, Ben has amassed an eclectic collection of wines from Spain, as well as other parts of the world. This has been a favourite place for Bob and me for many years and Ben was naturally one of the first people we approached with our Malbec. We were thrilled - and a little humbled - when he said he liked it and wanted to include it on his wine menu. Now I'm always happy to call Delicado because no matter who answers the phone they have only wonderful things to say about our wine! :)
Our Aluvión Malbec Reserve 2010 is available in Delicado's restaurant by the glass or the bottle, as well as for purchase through the bottle shop. My recommendation is you savour a glass while you sit at one of the tables on the footpath and imagine you are in Spain or Argentina.
