Winemaker Notes

Aromas of leather and root beer are rustic and inviting. Flavors of berries, pepper and red beets create a sweet palate, while firm tannins push the finish. A touch lactic and creamy, but good overall

Los Cardos, South America
The Thistle...a flower of surprising colour and unequalled beauty. It is the unmistaken symbol of the presence of good terroir, where grapes of the highest quality are grown. In Ugarteche, Lujan de Cuyo, at more than 1000 metres above sea level, our grapes enjoy a permanent fresh mountain breeze which descends from the Andes. The vineyards are submerged in this imposing yet silent landscape, where the intense lilac color of the thistle flourishes among the vines. Unchangeable, the original beauty of the thistle, growing larger with the passing of time...our Los Cardos wines do the same.

With vineyards tretching along the eastern side of the Andes Mountains from Patagonia in the south to Salta in the north, Argentina is one of the world’s largest and most dynamic wine producing countries—and most important in South America.

Since the late 20th century vineyard investments, improved winery technology and a commitment to innovation have all contributed to the country’s burgeoning image as a producer of great wines at all price points. The climate here is diverse but generally continental and agreeable, with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters—a positive, as snow melt from the Andes Mountains is used heavily to irrigate vineyards. Grapes very rarely have any difficulty achieving full ripeness.

Argentina’s famous Mendoza region, responsible for more than 70% of Argentina’s wine production, is further divided into several sub-regions, with Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley most noteworthy. Red wines dominate here, especially Malbec, the country’s star variety, while Chardonnay is the most successful white.

The province of San Juan is best known for blends of Bonarda and Syrah. Torrontés is a specialty of the La Rioja and Salta regions, the latter of which is also responsible for excellent Malbecs grown at very high elevation.
