This is one of our all-time favourite and most popular Malbecs. The fruit is 100% Uco Valley, Vista Flores to be precise, and the wine is made in a big, brassy style with bags of juicy dark fruit; firm, well-balanced tannins and fantastic length. In recent times the BenMarco project has been overseen by the amazing talent that is Edy del Popolo, now General Manager at Susana Balbo Wines and a very famous oenologist/winemaker in his own right. It's great to see that BenMarco is in such good hands.
"The style and blend of wine have changed in 2013 (it used to contain 5% Bonarda), as has the source (a single vineyard in Vista Flores). The oak has been toned down to good effect, too. It's very much a cool vintage wine with refined tannins and subtle flavours."
Tim Atkin ARGENTINA Special Report
"This is an ambitious wine... Sourced from Vista Flores and Chacayes, it's all about rich, bramble and blackberry fruit, firm age-worthy and powerful tannins... another compact red that's aimed at the medium to long term."
Luis Gutierrez, eRobertParker.com
"Plenty of ripe dark fruits with hints of earthy and funky undertones. Some might call it barnyard, but I like the decadence. Full body, soft tannins and a delicious finish."
