Wine & Spirits
While this wine opens up in a decanter, broil some steaks, as it’s a malbec that requires some patience. This is intense in both red and fruit and in structure- built on acidity and firm tannins. By the time the steak is done, the wine wil have integrated perfectly. This comes from a vineyard planted in 1932 in Mainqué, in Río Negro, which Noemía bought shortly after settling in Patagonia in 2001. It’s now the basis of some of the winery’s best wines.“
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 A Lisa is a fragrant blend of 90% Malbec, 9% Merlot and a pinch of Petit Verdot from their estate vineyards planted in 2004 and grapes purchased from local grape growers. It is a wine of great freshness, with notes of violets, lilies, pomegranates, wild strawberries and a chalky sensation, The palate is medium-bodied, but feels rather light on its feet, with the freshness of blood oranges. It has great length and a mineral, almost salty finish. A great wine and a great value!

Bodega Noemia de Patagonia, Patagonia, Argentina
Image of winery
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.

Patagonia

View all wine

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.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
