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.

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Noemía is a wine produced with the Malbec grapes from a 1.5-hectare plot of vines that was originally planted ungrafted in 1932 and has been farmed organically and biodynamically since 2006. The vines are surface-irrigated three to five times per year. The 2015 Noemía is from a slightly warmer and riper year than the 2016 (which I also tasted next to this). The grapes are picked by soil type (sand, sand and small stones, clay and lime) at different points in time. It fermented in 2,500-liter custom open-top oak fermentors with 10% to 15% whole clusters and natural yeasts, and the wine matured in 600-liter oak demi-muids for 18 months. The 2015 Noemía is expressive and open, with slightly darker fruit, some graphite notes, hints of spices and smoke, a touch of varnish and slightly more noticeable oak than the 2017 I tasted next to it. It has a slight earthiness on the palate along with some dusty tannins and deep flavors with some chalky tastiness and a dry finish, ending almost salty. 3,600 bottles were filled unfiltered in December 2016.

James Suckling
Aromas of chocolate, berries and spices with hints of smoke and meat. Full-bodied, juicy and flavorful. Long and intense. Love the blueberry character at the end. Drink now.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Plush and well-spiced, with creamy flavors of dark currant, berry and plum tart that are flanked by notes of dried meat. The rich finish of fig paste and black olive has plenty of minerality as well. Drink now through 2024.

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.

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.

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.
