The Estate

“Mosquita Muerta” is an expression in Spanish which is used to describe a person with apparently little potential for success who ends up accomplishing a remarkable feat. Jose Millán chose this name for his project to mock those in the region who doubted of his potential as a wine business entrepreneur.

Wine Making

Hand-harvested grapes from each estate at different dates in order to find the ideal ripeness and expression. This wine is fermented in concrete vats, and 50% of the volume saw used oak barrels for six to eight months. It’s a neat, rich and fruit-driven Malbec with clean aromas and flavors, a nice mouthfeel and very good freshness.

Food Suggestions

Pairs well with beef, lamb, and poultry dishes.
