Winemaker Notes

Keeping the elegant and balanced house style, Mosquita Muerta Malbec reveals aromas of flowers, wild berries, herbs and moderate influence from the oak aging.

From our highest vineyards located in Uco Valley at 1250 m.a.s.l. (Los Chacayes estate) and 1350 m.a.s.l. (El Manzano estate), hand-harvested grapes at different dates in order to find the ideal ripeness and expression. Each component is fermented in French oak barrels and concrete egg shaped vats. Then 50% of the wine is aged in new French oak barrles for 18 months while the rest remains in concrete vats.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The eponymous 2016 Mosquita Muerta Malbec is the top of the range (with a white and red blend in the same range) produced with fruit from different parts of Valle de Uco in Mendoza. It was produced in a fresh and transparent style, aided by the cool natural conditions of the year that delivered electric freshness. It has a varietal and clean nose mixing notes of violets and wild berries and herbs with very integrated oak. The palate is medium to full-bodied with juicy fruit and a tasty, almost salty finish.

 "Mosquita Muerta" is an expression in Spanish which is used to describe a person with apparently little potential for success who ends up accomplishing a remarkable feat. Jose Millán chose this name for his project to mock those in the region who doubted of his potential as a wine business entrepreneur.

“I started in 2009 with the main idea of creating Premium Blends, and not only Malbec. To accomplish this, we do a careful selection of the different varietal, from different vineyards at the foothills of the Andes Mountains, in the most important wine regions from Mendoza, Argentina.“ – José Millan

Their philosophy is to use multiples fermentation and aging techniques at the winery with all their wines in order to deliver stunning hand-crafted wines.

This is a very personal project because José is the one who named and defined each wine. Behind every Mosquita Muerta wine there’s a story from José that he wants to tell us…
