    What a deal to kick into winter with! This is a premium label, high quality, powerful Malbec from Argentina’s flagship producer.

    It’s the big, big bro (maybe that’s why they called it Broquel?) to the massively popular Trapiche Malbec and sells for up to $27 full price or around $20 on special. Think of it as Trapiche Malbec on steroids at an off-the-wall price! The importer wants to quit the last of this 2012 vintage and they ain’t mucking around on price – the saving is substantial.

    Malbec and Argentina is hot stuff in the world wine scene, getting plenty of wine scribblers around the globe seriously excited…

    “Malbec will make it big. This French varietal has reached startling heights of quality in Argentina.” – Robert Parker

    Adventurous wine drinkers know Argentina is on fire qualitatively– Wine Spectator

    “Argentina’s wines have been a well-kept secret of wine connoisseurs for years…but the silence is being broken” – Wall Street Journal

    Broquel is produced from single vineyard fruit, from 25 year old vines, aged for 15 months in oak. A big, black, powerful Malbec packed with dark fruit, a touch of spice with a smooth, silky finish.

    We love it. And so do a bunch of local wine writers, here’s what a few of ’em had to say…

    5 Stars – Joelle Thomson (DrinksBiz)
    “Think: black colour, full body, intense grainy tannins, massive fruit appeal and a complex savoury, lingering, deliciously good finish.”

    5 Stars – Sam Kim (Wine Orbit)
    “A powerful malbec showing the variety’s classic fruit richness and attractive savoury undertone.”

    Top 100 Wine – Paul Tudor (Metro Magazine)
    “This is a well-crafted example of Argentine malbec: concentrated, clean, ripe, but not heavy.”

    Drink now to 2020.
