Domaine Bousquet, Gaia Organic Malbec 2019

(2023) This organic-certified wine comes from the high altitude Gualtallary sub-region of Tupungato in Mendoza, and spent around 10 months in second use French oak. It's a deep and vibrant colour, with a little violet lift to black fruit, touches of cedar and schisty minerals. In the mouth there's a real sweetness of ripe blueberry and cassis, though tannins clamp down along with edgy plum acidity that gives gastronomic, bittersweet bite into the finish. A powerful, concentrated wine on offer at £13.99 in Waitrose from 25th January to 14th February 2023, which is a better bet than its full price. Watch the video for more information.
