Three vintages of Nosotros Single Vineyard Nómade Malbec by Susana Balbo Wines were included in James Suckling’s “Top-rated Argentine wines to date”. The 2013 vintage scored 99 points, while 2014 and 2011 received 98, placing them amongst the highest-scoring wines from Argentina, out of approximately 6,000 samples Suckling has tasted throughout his career.
In his report, Suckling praises Argentina as “one of the world’s most exciting wine countries”, highlighting how “the energy of the winemakers and viticulturalists here has been on an exponential learning curve over recent years”. He also mentions that, out of 6,000 Argentine wines tasted, almost 5,000 have scored 90+ points, and that every wine with a score of 98 points or higher has been made from 2010 forward, which reflects “how production and knowledge has improved in recent years”.
After many years tasting Argentine wines, the critic concludes that “there has never been a better time to be making and drinking wines from this region than now”.
