  • THE BRIEF
  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHO MADE IT?
  • THE BRIEF
  • Eugenio Bustas is one of the pioneers of the Uco Valley in Argentina, and first planted Malbec vines in 1890 which he had acquired from France (in payment for the trade of his best horses). It is the oldest winery in Argentina, and was the catalyst for planting what would become Argentina's signature grape variety.


  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Fermented to 14.5%, and aged 9 months in French and American oak. The fruit is supported by very fine-grained tannins, the extraction balanced and refined, allowing the fruit sweetness to carry through to an elegant finish with good length.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Deep purple red with bright violet reflections. On the nose we are reminded of licorice and balsamic red fruit, like cherry, in perfect harmony with the delicate violets and oak notes: mocha, vanilla and toffee. The plate is intense. Its entrance is typical of Malbec, with sweetness, and strong, but elegant turn. Good balance of tannic structure, alcohol and acidity.
