Tasting Notes

From one of many projects that seek to recover the many abandoned old vines in this region, when in the 70’s many wineries left the Rio Negro. These vines date back to 1947 and are located right on the banks of this gigantic river. Low yielding with stony soils, this is pure fruit. Unoaked and bare naked, the plum, raspberry juiciness is like an Eton mess. Lovely purity of old vine fruit.

Rio Negro, Patagonia

An old region, which is dominated by the production of first class apples, pears and cherries. This used to be a big wine producing region, with over 60 producers at its height in the 1960’s. Now it is a shadow of its former self, but continues to produce some of the best wines in Argentina. Pinot Noir is at its best here, with Bodega Chacra leading the way, and the amazing Hans Vinding Diers being the leading light of this beautiful region. The Rio Negro has an Old World charm, as do its wines. New producers are buying up old abandoned vines and bringing back this region as a beacon for high quality, elegant and sometimes very expensive wines.
