Winemaker Notes

This 100% hand harvested Sauvignon Blanc is from a single vineyard in Gualtallary, inside the Uco valley. The nose shows red grapefruit, ripe honeydew melon, orange peel, and lime notes that leads into flint, chalk, wet crushed stone, and a fleshy and round mouthfeel. The wine has a soft and elegant finish that just won’t stop.

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

2019 was cooler than 2018, and the 2019 Eggo Blanc de Cal is even fresher and stonier than the 2018 I tasted last time. This wine is never about the grape variety, and it's like liquid chalk, even more so in 2019. It matured in concrete eggs for 10 months. This is always produced from a limestone-rich plot in the Tupungato Winelands. Half of the wine fermented with the skins, but it doesn't have any "orange" characteristics. It's sharp and super tasty. Amazing value.It was bottled in December 2019.

Vinous

The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc EGGO Blanc de Cal from Gualtallary, Uco Valley, was 50% fermented with skins and aged for 10 months in cement eggs. Bright yellow in the glass. The unusual but intriguing herbal nose offers yeast, pastry, fennel and dill. The skinny yet intense palate has well-defined flavors of amaretti and herbs, a low alcohol content (11.5%), a watery feel and precise freshness. Direct and long-lasting, this is a white with a comet-length tail.

JS 90
James Suckling

Aromas of green mango, dried pineapple, lime zest and yoghurt. It’s medium-to full-bodied with bright acidity. Dense and waxy with a spiced, textured finish. Drink now.

Uco Valley Wine

Mendoza, Argentina

With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.

This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay also perform well here.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
