Domaine Bousquet Fortified Malbec

Mendoza, Argentina
Jean Bousquet - 2014
Product Code: FTT01
Grape: Malbec
Size: 50cl
Alcohol: 18%
A four month-long maceration ensures that the maximum amount of flavour has been extracted from the skins of the Malbec grapes. Good natural acidity is an essential factor in quality sweet wines and there's just the right amount here to keep in check the layers of plum fruits, chocolate, coffee, caramel, spice and marmalade flavours you'll find here. A delicious way to end dinner, serve it at no more than 15°c.

Domaine Bousquet

Frenchman Jean Bousquet travelled thousands of miles to find his 'optimum' vineyard location. In Mendoza, Argentina he found a site with, in his words 'idyllic wine-growing precipitation and temperatures, mild during the day and cool at night… situated at a good altitude (1,200 metres above sea level), with fresh air, few funguses, and very permeable sandy and rocky soils… these great attributes give the grapes the possibility to attain an optimum maturation without the risk of rotting and without having to use fungicides'. These perfect conditions combined with knowledge passed down through three winemaking generations makes for wines of exceptional quality.
