Gouguenheim Blue Melosa (Malbec), Flores del Valle, Mendoza 2015

A rich dark wine, with red and black fruit character on the nose and palate, a delicious creamy vanilla spice character and a lovely lifted finish. It is very well balanced with good length.

Press Reviews

Gougenheim Winery lies in Mendoza’s Uco Valley, in the foothills of the Andes, and its 100 acres of vineyards are at altitude, some as high as 1000 feet. This is a juicy malbec, with flavours of licorice root and blueberries.
Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph, 24th December 2020

If you want to pay a little more, a brilliant limited-edition malbec from the fine-wine merchant Tanners.
There’s malbec and then there’s malbec. This is the latter, a limited-edition flagship from a favourite producer. Melosa’s fine, floral, lavender and violet scent leads on to a brooding, but tangy, blueberry palate. Just the ticket with venison.
Jane MacQuitty, The Times, 28th November 2020

Transparent crimson. Pretty powerful nose – all that untrammelled sunshine! Sweet and spicy. Well made and with real spicy character, plus a hint of dried herbs. Quite concentrated. Sweet enough to drink without food, if you insist. 13.5%. 16.5/20. Drink 2018 – 2022
Jancis Robinson, www.jancisrobinson.com, 13th October 2020

This is a turbo-fruited Malbec and even though the oak is plush and pungent and the fruit is almost Zinfandel-like in its exuberance, every single element of this wine is in perfect balance. Of course, it helps that the plum and mulberry flavours have had five full years to mellow and unravel. The tannins are fondant and enticing and there is a silkiness here which legions of red grapes could never achieve. Grown at altitude, the fruit intensity is balanced with remarkable freshness and this is what makes Blue Melosa such a compelling and satisfying rich, red wine.
