Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Pale and subtle, this white Pinot Noir has a hint of colour, so could almost be sold as a rosé. Fresh and lightly wooded, with savoury undertones, some raspberry sweetness and tangy, refreshing acidity. 2019-22
Burnished gold color; smooth and rich with mouthwatering acidity and considerable depth. Zesty citrus notes lead up to a long, lush finish.
In a second stage, another 20 hectare estate with an old winery within was bought. The winery was originally built in 1927, and the estate had 1 hectare of old vineyards planted back in 1932 and 4 hectares planted in 1947, all of a masale selection of pre phylloxera Malbec.
One of the most southerly regions on the globe for fine wine production, Patagonia has experienced extraordinary vineyard expansion since the early 2000s.
Patagonia vineyards occupy the lower foothills of the Andes at 1,000 to 1,600 feet. Here cold air drops at night from incredibly steep elevations—the Andes reach well over 15,000 feet in this zone—a phenomenon that produces drastic diurnal shifts. Cold nights contrasted with hot summer days produce grapes with striking color, full ripeness, great finesse and aromatic intensity.
Favored for its luxury brands, the Patagonia wine growing region of Argentina focuses on a diverse array of international varieties: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillón and Viognier among the white grapes, and Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon for reds.
