Susana Balbo Benmarco Expresivo

We have one or two bottles of the 2013 left then we're onto the 2014. Both are stunningly good!

Every vintage of Benmarco Expessivo has been superb in my opinion. Not many people know about it, but it is one of my favourite wines. If you like good Bordeaux you will love this! The current trend in Argentina is to downplay the fruit a bit and make more European style wines, which I personally think is turning your back on one of Argentina's strongest selling points -  the high sugar levels and superb quality grapes derived from the consistent sunshine.

I find the recent vintage of Susana Balbo Brioso for example to be a little too austere for my taste. However this Benmarco Expressivo is still that typical Argentine blockbuster and I would choose this wine over Brioso every time. It's a beauty!

BenMarco Expresivo is a wine with aromas of blackberry, peppercorn tree, violet, mineral notes, balanced natural acidity and firm fine-grained tannins. "
