Winemaker Notes

The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve its fruit intensity and lively aromatics. A clear brilliant pale yellow color with intensely delicate fragrances of jasmine, citrus and a hint of honeysuckle and pears. Vibrant and harmonious in the mouth with zesty acidity and an elegantly crisp mouthfeel. A finish that provides a memorable impression of Argentina's native white wine.

Critical Acclaim

JS 90
James Suckling
A white with almost a semillon character, dried lemon and apples. Lime aromas and flavors too, plus saltiness. Full body, bright acidity and a tangy finish.

Recuerdo  Winery Image

The story begins in Mendoza, Argentina, in a rock-strewn vineyard encircled by majestic weeping willow trees. With a perfect view of the Andes Mountains, we frequently gather here to delight in a mid-day or evening asado. After a long meal in the vineyard, accompanied by plenty of wine (and good conversation, of course), we started to discuss a "Northern Hemisphere (38° North) meets Southern Hemisphere (32° South)" winemaking partnership. After a visit to The Vines of Mendoza by Paul Leary, a Private Vineyard Estate Owner (PVE) and principal at Blackbird Vineyards in Napa Valley, Recuerdo Wines was born.

Recuerdo means "memory" or "memento" in Spanish. As such, the Recuerdo winemaking team of Santiago Achaval and Pablo Martorell passionately believes that each bottle of Recuerdo should not only represent Argentina's native terroir but also serve as a memory of each and every harvest.

Enthusiasts can find Recuerdo Wines at specialty wine shops, enjoy them at modern fine dining establishments, and taste them at Ma(i)sonry: the leading art, design and wine gallery in the Napa Valley.

Mendoza Wine

Argentina

View all products

By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza, divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, is the source of some of the country’s finest wines.

For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec. Originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s, here it found success and renown that it never knew in its homeland where a finicky climate gives mixed results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and sometimes even blended with each other or Malbec). Mendoza's main white varieties include Chardonnay, Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.

Unapologetically fun and distinctively fragrant, Torrontés is regarded as the signature white grape of Argentina. In many ways it bears a striking resemblance to Muscat (and in fact is an offspring of Muscat of Alexandria). Sommelier Secret-If you’re in search of a new summer sipper, look no further than Torrontés. These wines are always inexpensive, delightfully refreshing and are best enjoyed in the sunny outdoors at a picnic, poolside or as a porch sipper.
