Wine information
Just as its name suggests, Familia Blanco is a family-owned winery based in Luján de Cuyo district of Mendoza. For three generations, they worked the land to grow fruit which was then sold to wine producers. But in 2005, Gabriel and his wife Monica decided that it was time for their own passion and vision to take root, so they began producing their own bottles. Notably rich in colour, this Malbec opens with an opulent nose of sweet crushed blackberries, liquorice, spice and savoury meaty notes. Despite being quite plush on the palate, it is still nicely balanced with appealing lifted acidity.

Robin says "Argentine Malbec has become one of the most sought after drinking wines in recent years. With its pronounced fruit and flesh, it is easy to understand its appeal. Familia Blanco produces a quintessential one that is well worth seeking out to those who appreciate ample, fruit-forward wine."
