The Bousquet family combines four generations of traditional winemaking with Mendoza’s ideal winegrowing conditions. Their constant search to achieve optimum ripeness allows them to create wines that boast delicious fruit character with ripe tannins and high acidity and are constantly receiving great reviews from wine critics.
Fermented in contact with American oak and aged for 6 months. A typical Malbec with aromas of blackberry and cassis with hints of spicy black pepper. Medium bodied with silky tannins and ripe fruit flavours. Smooth and elegant. Received 91pts from Tim Atkin in February 2019 and ranked No 17 on Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s ‘top 100 Best Buys’ list for 2019, which makes it the best Argentinian wine on the list.

Black fruit aromas are bold and friendly, but simple in a good way, meaning the nose is open and uncomplicated. A dense, chewy palate is ripe and full, while this Malbec tastes entirely of black fruits. A full finish shows mild heat and tannic grip but nothing that makes things difficult.- 89 pts Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast
