Made from 100% organic grapes grown 1,200 metres above sea level and oak-aged for 10 months, the wine has much to offer. Lovely golden colour with enough green in there to make it stand out. The nose is heavy with vanilla, coconut, pear, and tropical fruits, with green apple and pears as the strongest flavours. There are mild hints of jasmine and mild spices and a typically creamy palate, with good volume and balanced acidity. 88 Points – JamesSuckling.com (2017 vintage) The Bousquet family originally arrived from Carcassonne, in the South of France set up shop in Mendoza in 1997.
