Winemaker Notes

Pure, minerally and powerful, with concentrated flavors of red plum and dried raspberry, loaded with powerful meaty notes. Sandalwood accents linger on the finish, showing caressing tannins. Its structure being rather airy and open, Barda was conceived to be consumed while still fresh and young. Its alcohol percentage is generally low – 12 to 13 percent. Produced from Chacra’s youngest vineyards, Barda has a strong and character and is intended to be versatile – a perfect companion for most foods. The vineyards, planted in 1990, grow on slightly sandy soils. As all our vineyards, Barda’s vineyards are ungrafted and massale selection yielding over 2 kilos per plant. It is fermented at low temperatures in round cement tanks, with natural and unfiltered indigenous yeasts.

A perfect pairing for fish, salads and omelettes.

JS 94
James Suckling
A bright and dense red with vivid lemon character, blueberries and stone. A firm and silky tannin structure. Full-bodied, but remains agile and energetic. This is half the normal production due to a short crop. 65% cement and the rest aged in used oak. Needs a year or two to come around but a beauty already.
TP 92
Tasting Panel

Lovely, bright cherry on the nose and palate; crisp, balanced, and fresh with tangy acidity; grown on slightly sandy soils in Chacra's youngest vineyards and aged ten months in French oak.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Barda is approachable and soft, with sweet fruit, in a more commercial profile. It comes from different vineyards—the majority from one plot planted in 1989 and small portions of older vines. It's a little more concentrated than usual, as they had very low yields, so it has some tannins, even if they are very fine grained. It fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts, and one-fourth of the wine matured in French oak barrels for ten months while the rest was kept in concrete. 52,000 bottles and 400 magnums were filled in January 2018.

W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
This is Chacra’s young-vine pinot noir, from vines planted 20 years ago in the sandy soils of Río Negro. Its juicy raspberry and cherry flavors show a crunchy and fresh side of the grape. It shines in its simplicity and vigor, ready for roast duck.

Bodega Chacra is located in the Rio Negro Valley of northern Patagonia, 620 miles south of Buenos Aires, 1,240 miles north of Tierra del Fuego, and roughly equidistant west to east from the Andes Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. The property's situation in the arid central Argentine desert is tempered by the confluence of the Neuquen and Limay Rivers, both of which flow from the Andes and converge in the Rio Negro, which in turn flows into the Atlantic. The Rio Negro Valley itself is a glacial bed 15.5 miles wide stretching 310 miles along the river's banks at an elevation of 750 feet above sea level. The valley is irrigated by a network of channels excavated in the late 1820s by British colonists who observed the abundant snow melt flowing from the Andes and created an oasis in the middle of the desert.

The climate is dry, with maximum humidity of thirty percent and an average of seven inches of rainfall annually. This aridity, coupled with the natural barrier of the surrounding desert, results in a complete absence of phylloxera and vine diseases. The air is pristine and without pollution, creating tremendous luminosity and purity of sunlight. During the ripening period, in the first quarter of the year, diurnal temperatures vary widely, ranging from an average of 82.4F (28C) during the day and 48.2F (9C) at night. The seasons are precisely defined, with hot summers, cold winters and mild springs and autumns. This consistency of climate enhances consistency of the wine from vintage to vintage.
