Way back in 1882 Eugenio Bustos decided to start a vineyard in Mendoza's Uco Valley. Little did he know he'd be kickstarting the entire Argentian wine industry, fatefully trading some of his best cattle for Malbec vines imported from France. 

137 years later we can proudly present to you the latest release from Eugenio's winery in Mendoza, the delicious 2017 La Celia Eugenio Bustos Malbec Mendoza.

How's it taste?

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.

How was it made?

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.

Who made it?

Eugenio Bustas was 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). La Celia Eugenio Bustos is the oldest winery in Argentina, and responsible for planting what would become Argentina's signature grape variety.
