Nosotros line celebrates the efforts of all the people who work daily to make this wine. It is a representation of the best that we can accomplish as a team, as a family.

Each vintage, Susana and her winemaking team chooses the best quality grape from a specific vineyard to create Nosotros, one of the few ultra- premium Argentine Malbecs that can boast impressive power with incredible balance and refined structure.

Only a limited quantity of Nosotros is made each year, therefore every bottle is special and unique. It is considered the winery’s “selection of selections”. Wine collectors must have a bottle in their cellar. 

James Suckling 99 Points

Classy and layered nose, showing minty blackberries, black sour cherries, cassis, cigars and minerals, following through to cocoa powder and fine-tuned balsamic savoriness. A medium-to full-bodied red with wonderful freshness, juicy fruit and poise on the palate. Incredibly long, focused and immaculate. Really well-rounded, complex and persistent. Real harmony and length.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 94 Points

The 2019 Nosotros Single Vineyard Nómade Malbec was produced with grapes from Paraje Altamira (Finca La Delfina), but each year it can be sourced from different vineyards, hence the "nómade" in the name. The vineyard is around 25 years old, and the grapes fermented in a 6,500-liter oak vat with indigenous yeasts and had a 30- to 35-day maceration time, then matured in French oak barrels, 80% of them new, for 16 months, including malolactic. There's something earthy about it, and it's still marked by the oak and has some lactic undertones too but with moderate ripeness, 14% alcohol and very good freshness and balance to develop nicely in bottle and absorb it.

Susana Balbo

The most recognised and well-known female oenologist in Argentina, Susana Balbo has been instrumental in the transformation of quality table wines in Argentinean viticulture. She is best known for her innovation and progressive spirit in developing wines with unique character and quality, and she is the first Argentinean oenologist ever hired as a consultant by European wineries. At Susana Balbo Wines, her family's winery in the famed Mendoza wine region of Argentina, Susana crafts her own signature label wines. They embody the complexity of various grapes along with her creativity as an oenologist to produce fine wines that express prestige, power and finesse. For her Crios label, which means "offspring" (as in children), Susana selected a word to express the notion that these are wines given loving care and attention deserving of her children. The three hands on the label, inspired by a Mayan artefact, represent Susana and her two children. By definition, Crios is to be enjoyed while still young and vibrant.
