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.
The grapes for the reserve Malbec are sourced from some of the best vineyard plots. Aged in French oak barrels for 10 months and packed with aromas of blackcurrant and raspberry with hints of figs, chocolate and tobacco. Medium-bodied with silky tannins and good acidity.

A versatile Malbec from Mendoza that is both organic and vegan friendly. Typicity is evident with the plumminess on the nose, plus baking spices from the slight oak influence. The palate brings notes of baked plums and prunes. A Malbec to serve with pizza and empanadas, a classic Argentine weeknight meal.- 90 pts Brianne Cohen, Decanter
