Bodegas Bressia
Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina

Lush and full bodied with great structure. Just delicious!

Points James Suckling
 "Aromas of ripe blackcurrants, stewed cherries, chocolate, charred bark and dried herbs.
It’s full-bodied with firm, creamy tannins.
Ripe, rounded finish, yet reserved and tight.
Nicely bitter at the end. Drink or hold." 

The vineyard is 3,083 feet above sea level, and the grapes are grown on 25 year old vines in the Lujan de Cuyo district of Mendoza, close to Walter’s bodega in the rain shadow of the Cordon del Plata. Grapes were harvested by hand. Walter Bressia's aim was to produce wine that reflects the true essence of his unique terroir, and this is a blend of 5 different parcels of grapes. Fermentation took place between 25-27°C. 80% of the blend is aged for 18 months in French and American oak. There was no filtration and no fining.

Our Thoughts on this wine.....

 Pure and powerful, yet elegant and aromatic, this is a deeply compelling Malbec.
It exhibits beautiful bright violet aromas and ripe black fruits. 
Plum and cherry fruit aromas combine with leather and spice notes
to produce aromas and flavors of hints of  dark, red cherry and sweet spices. 
Lush, full yet balanced acidity to deliver a long finish.


Walter Bressia in his own words….
At the beginning of 2003, together with my wife and children, we started a family business under the concept of "family wines",
this being the result of a long experience and trajectory as an oenologist making wines in the national and international market. 
It is a small project whose main goal is the limited and personal sale of small batches of wine and grappa of the highest quality.
Each bottle is unique, so one can enjoy the pleasure offered by the particularity of each vintage.
At Bodega Bressia we use the minimalist concept for the production of all our wines, which is considered the minimum human intervention supported by adequate technology. We have a proportionate capacity of French and American oak barrels that allow us to design the wines with a very careful and balanced style in its concentration in wood. The aging in barrels is carried out in an underground cellar located 6 meters deep that houses 340 barrels. The oak aging is done in a subterranean cellar which is located six meters below the surface and houses 500 oak barrels.
