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.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The riper character of the vintage comes through in the top-of-the-range and eponymous 2017 Mosquita Muerta Malbec. But the wine manages to keep its poise and reveals good freshness to come into a different balance than in cooler years. The grapes come from high-altitude vineyards in the Valle de Uco, and only half of the wine matured in oak barrels to keep the oaking very discrete and completely in the background.
D 91
Restrained nose with savoury and herbal notes over liquorice undertones. Intense palate of wild forest fruits, supple and rounded.

 "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…

Uco Valley Wine

Mendoza, Argentina

View all products

With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.

This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay also perform well here.

Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
