So floral on the nose with hints of citrus and crushed stones. Medium to full body. Very silky tannins. Extended finish that gives a sense of ripeness and precision. The fruit pops out at the end. Balanced and all about finesse. Savory freshness brings you back together. Drinkable now, but will age for years ahead. ... More details

2017 was a humid year that had a late spring frost and a cool summer with some higher temperatures during harvest. The 2017 Noemía, produced with grapes from one 1.5-hectare plot that has been certified by Demeter for the past seven years, fermented with 15% full clusters and 20% crushed berries, and the rest fermented uncrushed in 2,500-liter open-top oak fermentors with their own estate yeasts. The wine matured in first and second use oak demi-muids for 23 months, during which time the wine was racked three times. The wine has a restrained 13% alcohol. The extended élevage made it feel extremely young and backward compared with the 2018s I tasted next to it. The oak is still noticeable, and I think it will need one or two years in bottle to integrate it completely. There is beautiful fruit, flowers, purity and elegance, with a medium-bodied palate that reveals plenty of energy, fine tannins and long-lasting flavors, finishing with very tasty, almost salty sensations. 3,900 bottles and 150 magnums were filled in May 2019.

A Malbec planted in 1932 in Mainque, aged in 600-liter barrels for 23 months. The year and the new direction taken by the man in charge of Noemía, Hans Vinding Diers, both bore fruit in this wine. Purple in color with a nose of ripe plum and cedar and pencil box aromas, it is delicate in the mouth, presenting a smooth, elegant complexion and an aftertaste of oak overlaid with a gentle touch of smoke. A deliciously fluid take on the variety.

Varietal: Malbec

In recent years, the Malbec single variety wines coming out of many New World countries have been gaining a lot of attention as a result of their fantastic plummy flavors, and strong, full-bodied nature. However, Malbec grape varietals have been cultivated for centuries in many Old World countries for these very characteristics, and they have long had a strong presence in some of the best blended wines ever produced by leading wineries. Their high tannin level and heavy juiciness means they are ideal for big, powerful full-bodied wines packing a strong fruit-forward punch on the palate, and their beautiful deep red color has long been admired and upheld as a mark of quality. The Malbec grapes are probably at their best when blended with other, mellower and more rounded grape varietals, such as a Merlot, as this allows their best features and their fruity flavor to shine, whilst being softened somewhat and made lighter and more drinkable.

Region: Patagonia

Patagonia is perhaps not the first region of South America which comes to mind when we think of wine, but this unusual and surprising region is consistently impressing with many of the Old World style wines which are being produced there each year. The arid and cold landscape has proven to be actually quite good for vineyard cultivation, and is helped by seasonal warm winds which travel downwards from the equator in the winter time. Red wine grapes such as Pinot Noir and Malbec have produced impressive results, thanks to the traditional wine techniques brought to the region by European settlers, and the white wines made from varietals such as Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc regularly win awards for their exceptional character and interesting features.

Country: Argentina

As the world's fifth largest producer of wine, after France, Italy, Spain and the United States, Argentina has plenty to offer the international wine market in regards to both quantity and quality. Despite this being the case for several decades now, it has only been since the end of the twentieth century that the Argentinian wine industry has really begun to up their game when it comes to the methods and techniques required to produce world class wines, which are both representative of their country and region of origin, and which stand alone as complex, interesting and delicious wines to drink. As Argentina became a serious contender in the international wine market, wineries previously concerned primarily with high volumes began to change their priorities, and formerly struggling small bodegas and independent wineries began to find success. Nowadays, well crafted wines from smaller vineyards in Argentina are being lauded as some of the finest in the world, and the country is starting to reap the benefits of its heritage, which include some very old vines, and up to four centuries of experience in wine production.
