Made for Gaucho by famous Finca Sophenia winery in Tupungato, Uco Valley. Consultant Matias Michelini oversees this and is the best maker of Sauvignon Blanc in Argentina. Picked at 3 points to ensure quality it is lean, mineral with grassy and green apple notes. Brilliant, clean and fresh ﬁnish.
Lying further to the West, and within the department of Tupungato, Gualtallary is one of the most talked about regions in Argentina. Home to some of the best winemakers, and best vineyards in Mendoza combine to make some of the best quality, modern, tense and complex wines currently setting the world alight for Argentina. Cabernet Franc is terrific here, as is Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay is at its best. Mineral, alluvial soils with pockets of chalk, combined with altitudes from 1250-1600m above sea level makes this one of ‘THE’ places to look for now and in the future.
