Awarded one of the "Most influential women winemakers" in the world by The Drink Business magazine in 2012, and "Woman of the year" by that same publication 3 years later, Susana Balbo has certainly earned her place – well ahead of the curve in the modern era of Argentina's winemaking scene. The dream of a lifetime – she calls it her third child – her eponymous winery sits center stage as a beacon for others to emulate. Now managing four, unique and completely individual lines, Balbo works to create the perfect wine to suit multiple consumer preferences from her various vineyard holdings throughout Mendoza. Her most impressive collection is the BenMarco line, built on traditional varietals grown at incredible altitudes. This is maybe her finest BenMarco Malbec yet.


Produced with grapes from one vineyard in Chacayes in the Valle de Uco, the 2016 BenMarco Malbec is floral, spicy, aromatic, showy and expressive, with great freshness and lots of aromatic herbs, black pepper and flowers. This has both good ripeness and freshness, with very fine tannins. It's a short (the shortest!) vintage with moderate alcohol but good concentration. 200,000 bottles produced. In the last few years, this has been sourced from Altamira.
