Winemaker's Notes:

J.Alberto is a field blend of 95% Malbec and 5% Merlot. High-toned nose of violet and vanilla, with ripe blackberry and boysenberry fruit. This wine stays bright and open-knit though the finish, with spice and graphite notes. It's perfect for red meat courses cooked any style.

About Bodega Noemia de Patagonia:

Residing on the 39th latitude, Bodega Noemia is one of the southern-most wineries in the world. A region of glacial origins with poor soil and limestone-rich bedrock, it benefits from the mineral-rich waters of the Limay and Neuquen rivers. First plated in 1932, the original pre-phylloxera rootstock of the vineyards was carefully resuscitated starting in 2001, and winemaker Hans Vinding-Diers oversaw the estate'd Massale selections in order to create tailored vineyard compositions. To amplify the terroir's signature in the final wines, fermentation is carried out using only indigenous yeasts. Committed to protecting this unique patrimony, almost all Bodega Noemia wines are produced in accordance with Argencert organic and Demeter biodynamic standards.
