This sun loving red wine from Argentina is deep in colour, plump and juicy, slight sweetness in the mouth with just the right amount of tannin, great with food or on its own.

Gouguenheim Malbec by Patricio Gouguenheim

High and Dry

Patricio Gouguenheim’s winery sits high in the Uco Valley with the Andes Mountains looming in the distance, like some improbable backdrop to a film set. It is one of the highest wineries in the Mendoza wine region and the vines thrive on the melt water flowing down the mountains in what is an otherwise dry dessert climate.

 

The French Connection

Born to French parents who had moved to Buenos Aires, Patricio’s love affair with wine began at just 7 years of age when, in that French way, he was given red wine mixed with sparkling water at meal times. Years later, after the Argentine economic crash in 2002, he would quit his job as a businessman in Buenos Aires to take over a pretty but neglected winery on the slopes of the Uco Valley.

 

Wine Fit For a Pope

Today Patricio oversees what has become one of the top wineries in Argentina. His Malbec in particular is astonishingly good and has been amongst our bestsellers for some time now. Indeed Patricio had the honour of presenting his wines to his compatriot Pope Francis who chose them to be served at his first Christmas Dinner for the homeless.

 

"A brilliant mix showing rich flavours yet great drinkability, with dark fruits, mocha notes and a refreshing finish." Martin Moran on Gouguenheim Malbec, The Sunday Times

Press Reviews

"A serious drop, firm tannin and full fruit, nice tingle of acid and good length." Raymond Blake, Food and Wine Magazine

"Perfumed bouquet with a little whiff of herbs. Dark fruits and black olives on the palate. Knocks spots off any Chilean merlot and is real value for money." Ernie Whalley, The Sunday Times

"A brilliant mix showing rich flavours yet great drinkability, with dark fruits, mocha notes and a refreshing finish." Martin Moran (MW), The Sunday Times.

"Sweet and beguiling. Lots of ripe fruit on the front palate plus spice and meat extract. Lots of delivery and no heaviness. Very clean and fresh." Jancis Robinson.
