Winemaker Notes

In view shows a deep red color and reflections of evolution, with good clarity and intensity. The nose has great delicacy, consisting of a mixture of ripe red fruit, cherry and cassis notes, and the contribution of the barrel with notes of chocolate and spice. In the mouth a soft entry with good structure is perceived by presenting a balanced wine with a long finish, hints of caramel and vanilla.

Blend: 34% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 33% Malbec.

Blueberry and blackberry aromas with hints of mushrooms. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Fig, prune and raisin aromas lose some clarity and turn more damp and mulchy as this Bordeaux blend unwinds. A thick saturated palate ranks pretty close to being syrupy, while ultraripe berry flavors are accented by coffee, chocolate and oak, all of which hang around on a bold finish. Southern Starz, Inc.

Antucura Winery Image
Antucura means the ancient language of the Pehuenches - the first inhabitants of the area - "Stone of the Sun." We chose this name for our winery and lodge at Vista Flores because the vineyards that give the birth to our beloved wines grow here naturally, among stones and rocks. This special blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot was elaborated with both care and passion. It aged in new French oak barrels for twelve months before bottling, then stored until ready for release.

Our winery mingles with the terroir, the ancient viticultural traditions and the new vinification technologies. Born to be the matrix of super premium and ultra premium wines, our winery counts with top quality controls and extra care. Through a special gravity flow system the grapes are gently pressed and therefore wines are nurtured in unparalleled conditions.

With vineyards tretching along the eastern side of the Andes Mountains from Patagonia in the south to Salta in the north, Argentina is one of the world’s largest and most dynamic wine producing countries—and most important in South America.

Since the late 20th century vineyard investments, improved winery technology and a commitment to innovation have all contributed to the country’s burgeoning image as a producer of great wines at all price points. The climate here is diverse but generally continental and agreeable, with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters—a positive, as snow melt from the Andes Mountains is used heavily to irrigate vineyards. Grapes very rarely have any difficulty achieving full ripeness.

Argentina’s famous Mendoza region, responsible for more than 70% of Argentina’s wine production, is further divided into several sub-regions, with Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley most noteworthy. Red wines dominate here, especially Malbec, the country’s star variety, while Chardonnay is the most successful white.

The province of San Juan is best known for blends of Bonarda and Syrah. Torrontés is a specialty of the La Rioja and Salta regions, the latter of which is also responsible for excellent Malbecs grown at very high elevation.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
