Critical Acclaim

RP92 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Dec 2016

"There is one white in the appellation range, the 2015 Appellation Tupungato Chardonnay, which is subtly balsamic and spicy from limestone-rich soils in Tupungato in the Valle de Uco, from two vineyards, in Villa Bastías and La Esmeralda. There are pungent flavors, very good intensity and balance and the chalky sensation is nicely coated by juicy fruit. One for the table. 15,000 bottles produced. The first vintage was 2012." (92 pts.)

VN90 Vinous Mar 2016

"Bright gold-tinged yellow. Much deeper, riper and richer than the basic 2014 Mendoza Chardonnay, offering sweet stone fruit and apple flavors lifted by saline minerality. This dense Chardonnay shows glyceral warmth but finishes with noteworthy lift." (90 pts.)

Argentina

Argentina took the wine world spotlight in the late 20th century with its plush, smooth Malbec. While the popular red grape still reigns supreme, Argentine wineries are increasingly putting forth excellent examples of multiple varietals, all at the extraordinary bargains that make this region so accessible.

Now the fifth largest wine-producing nation in the world, Argentina enjoys high-altitude and low-humidity vineyard sites, comparatively unencumbered by insects and disease. Argentina’s unique terroir has captured the interest of such internationally celebrated winemakers as Paul Hobbs and Michel Rolland, both of whom have projects in the country.
