"The 2011 Malbec Grand Reserve, aged for 20 months in new Nadalie barrels, smells of leather, forest floor, dill and paprika over a core of cherries in liqueur not unlike some traditional Riojas (from Spain, not from Argentina). The palate is medium-bodied, with some grippy tannins, good acidity and length. This wine calls for food. Drink 2014-2018."

RICHARD BONVIN
I was born in Valais, Switzerland in 1972 and have been passionate about wine all my life. At the age of 14, I took care of 2000 m2 of my family's vineyard, and then I made my own wine. The results were not the best, but the experience I had led me to decide to learn more about this profession, and to become a winemaker.
At the age of 22, I finished my Enology studies in Nyon, and then worked at various wineries and vineyards in Valais for 6 years. Those were boutique wineries where I had to get involved in every aspect of winemaking - from working in the vineyards all the way through to getting the wine bottled. I have always loved travelling, and thanks to my profession in 2000 I was able to do a harvest in Brazil at Bodega Miolo. After that I spent four years in South Africa, as winemaker for the Origin Wine Group.
While on a visit to Mendoza, Argentina, I finally felt as if I had come home because it is a city where wine is part of everyone's life. In Argentina there are many different "terroir" and every day I learn something new about this profession that helps me produce the best wines... I have worked at Mendoza Vineyards since 2004, and will remain here for many years.

Very nice when paired appropriately

"For me, this wine goes best with a flavorful meal such as a Middle Eastern dish. It has not so subtle finish when paired with less robust fair."
