Professional Wine Reviews for Bodega Noemia Noemia Malbec 2013

Rated 98 by Decanter
The clarity and precision in this wine shows incredible blueberry, blackberry, hazelnut, and hints of stone. Full body, amazing complexity. It goes on for minutes. Chewy yet offers a bright austerity. Drink or hold. (Suckling)

Additional Information on Bodega Noemia Noemia Malbec 2013

Winery Bodega Noemia

Varietal: Malbec

Malbec grapes have a beautiful deep and dusty purple color, and can now be found growing in abundance in many different countries. They thrive most successfully in hot, dry southern climates, a long way from their home in native France. However, whilst many Old World wineries had and continue to have a lot of success with this flavorful grape, its susceptibility to rot and weakness against cold and damp meant that its usage began to dwindle in the countries such as France whilst it grew in the New. Malbec's thick skins lend it strong tannins, something which allows the wines produced from these grapes to hold their distinctive, astringent and full-bodied character. They also tend to be packed full of plummy, fleshy fruit-forward flavors, making them an interesting and complex grape for single variety wines, as well as an ideal grape for blending and aging.

Region: Patagonia

When it comes to Patagonia, one would be forgiven for expressing surprise at the region's ever growing and successful wine industry. Cold, dry and comparatively flat, this low altitude region of South America has been inhabited for a couple of centuries by an eclectic mix of European settlers, who, over time, began planting vineyards of grapes imported from their native lands. Despite the conditions being less than favorable for viticulture, vintners are helped by some unusual weather phenomenons, and generations of expertise and perseverance. Today, the wine industry of Patagonia is doing well, with several Old World grape varietals thriving there. Whilst the red wines of the region - made commonly with Pinot Noir and Malbec grapes - are highly regarded, it is the white wines which impress the most on the world stage, and it is likely Patagonia will continue to grow as an important New World wine region over the next few decades.

Country: Argentina

In the dry, arid deserts of Argentina, wineries and winemakers are focusing their efforts on producing high quality wines for the world market. By experimenting with both traditional and modern methods and technologies, they have found great success with a wide variety of grapes well suited to the conditions of the country, particularly Malbec, Bonarda and Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the past decade, Argentinian wineries have continued to aim high, and this has led to a range of new wines using grape varietals not typically associated with the country. The cooler regions of Argentina are seeing more vineyards being planted with Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir varietals, something that is beginning to produce fantastic results, which are at once representative of the country's wines - with all their fruity and bold character - but are also pushing the boundaries of what we expect from a New World country.
