Winemaker Notes

Deep violet with garnet edges. Intense dark fruit, coffee, dark chocolate and spice notes. Well-balanced and elegant; well-integrated fruit, tannins and acidity; persistent, long finish.

Pairs well with lamb, red meats, game and is a great accompaniment to cheese boards.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Bodega Noemia de Patagonia is pure Malbec from a 70-year-old vineyard in Mainque, Rio Negro, Patagonia, and is a baby that smells of the most exquisite French barrels you can dream of, under which there is a huge core of ripe, almost heady, red and blue fruit showing a special brightness with perfumed notes of flowers and wet limestone. The palate is medium-bodied with a great sense of harmony and elegance, sweet fruit aromas, great acidity and a tasty, umami-driven finish. It has very sophisticated, ultra-fine tannins. You feel the hand of a great winemaker in this wine, the balance and power of the old vines, and while slightly international-styled and hard to pin down as Patagonian (it is very sleek!), it is lovely and gives enormous pleasure. Superb! This could be drunk now, but should also last quite well, as it has the balance and acidity to do so.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Compact and tight, with full yet fine tannins holding the fresh-crushed cherry, cassis, spice box, incense and mineral notes. Classy and monolithic, this needs time to reach maturity.
JS 95
James Suckling
A red with beautiful depth of fruit on the nose with blackberries, blueberries and wet earth. Yet subtle and complex. Full body, with super integrated fruit and tannins. Hints of toasted oak too. It's structured and powerful. From biodynamically grown grapes. Try this in 2017.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Concentrated aromas form the forceful greeting on this oaky wine from Patagonia. In addition, graphite and shoe polish scents are prominent. In the mouth, things feel grabby and dense, while mint, herbal berry, plum and a lot of oak drive the flavor profile. A finish with licorice and a hint of green are the final act.

Bodega Noemia de Patagonia, South America
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 products

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.

Malbec

View all products

Known for its big, bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec is most famous for its runaway success in Argentina. However, the variety actually originated in Bordeaux, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. After being nearly wiped out by a devastating frost in 1956, it was never significantly replanted, although it continued to flourish under the name Côt in nearby Cahors. A French agronomist who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. But it did not gain its current reputation as the country's national grape until a surge in popularity in the late 20th century.

In the Glass

Malbec typically expresses deep flavors of blackberry, plum and licorice, appropriately backed by aromas of freshly turned earth and dense, chewy tannins. In warmer, New World regions, such as Mendoza, Malbec will be intensely ripe, and full of fruit and spice. From its homeland in Cahors, its rusticity shines; dusty notes and a beguiling bouquet of violets balance rich, black fruit.

Perfect Parings

Malbec’s rustic character begs for flavorful dishes, like spicy grilled sausages or the classic cassoulet of France’s Southwest. South American iterations are best enjoyed as they would be in Argentina: with a thick, juicy steak.

Sommelier Secret

If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet. With its combination of bold flavors and soft tannins, it will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys red wine. Malbec also wins bonus points for affordability, as even the most inexpensive examples are often quite good.
