Gaia Red Blend 2013 Domaine Bousquet, Mendoza, Argentina

Hedonistic new wine from the great Domaine Bousquet made from 50% Malbec, 45% Syrah and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Extremely rich and full-bodied, yet wonderfully smooth. 

This wine is opaque violet, almost black with aromas of red fruit and blackberries, showing many layers of silky and round tannins with notes of violet, blackberry, plump and spice. Silky palate and soft rounded tannins with notes of blackberries, spices, truffles providing aromatic complexity for an exquisite finish.

Food match: this wine goes well with grilled red meats, meats with rich sauces, cheeses as well as chocolate based deserts.

Drink now through 2018.

Tupungato, the premium sub-region of Mendoza where Domaine Bousquet is located, has phenomenal climatic conditions.

One of the key factors for a vineyard in Argentina is the altitude, and the Bousquet vines sit at 1,200 metres above sea level. This means the vines get the full benefit of the South American sun during the day, but the temperatures drop quickly at night, which maintains the acidity in the grapes, increases the aromatics, and prevents the fruit flavours from becoming too 'jammy'.
