Noemia A Lisa 2018
6 PACK BUY Pristine taste of Patagonia
This leading Patagonia winery is located in Rio Negro Valley, 620 miles south of Buenos Aires in the middle of the desert of Patagonia, Argentina. The climate is bone dry with just seven inches of rain each year. The dry climate with a maximum humidity of 30% keeps the area free of disease; the atmosphere is pristine, pure and unpolluted. Winemaker, Hans Vinding-Diers (Danish, Bordeaux-trained, cousin of Peter Sisseck of Pingus fame in Espana) is fanatical as far as attention to detail goes – biodynamic viticulture, hand harvesting and gravity driven vinification. He joined forces with italiana Noemi Marone-Cinzano (part of the Cinzano family) in this exciting venture. The hallmark of this bodega is “elegancia” , a seamless palate and balance- not big tannic blockbusters often typical of Mendoza.
Fruit is sourced from three different vineyards all 50 yrs of age. This red blend comprises 90% Malbec, 9% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot and was matured 11 months in in 40% old French barrels and 60% in stainless steel vats. Deep purple colour with aromas of spice, currants and a hint of violets. Full-bodied and signature elegance in this wine-more savoury fruit spectrum than malbec from mendoza with lots of blackberry and dark cherry fruit and silky fine grained tannins and a lick of raspberry. This 2018 is focused,velvety plush and complex. Do not miss out on a taste of pristine Patagonia!
Reviews of the 2016
93 points, Tim Atkin MW “Hans Vinding-Diers’ aim was to capture the energy” of the 2016 vintage and he certainly succeeded. This is a step up on the 2015, with added finesse and perfume, youthful, floral, summer berry fruit and a long, mineral-edged finish. Very Burgundian.”
92 points, James Suckling “Aromas of earth and spices with hints of berries and dried meat follow through to a medium body and soft and silky tannins. I like the smoky and decadent fruit on the finish. Drink now.”
