El Porvenir Oaked Single Vineyard Torrontes 2015
This Torrontes from Salta, northern Argentina, is something a bit different from highly respected wine maker El Porvenir. Fermentation took place in French oak barrels for 25 days, and the wine was then oak aged for a further 6 months. This is a unique delicious Torrontes, a perfect companion for smoked salmon and trout with horseradish or indeed any spicy foods. Turkey curry and this Torrontes would be a match made in heaven.
Accuro Cabernet Franc 2019
One of our clients described this as "sunshine in a glass". And they aren't wrong. Jancis Robinson (British wine critic) said Cabernet Francs from Argentina are drinking better than the Loire Valley and she isn't wrong either. Both of these ladies are proved correct as this a smash hit of a wine, selling out at all wine events in 2021. An intense garnet red colour with aromas of blackberries, spices, and tobacco. With 9 months of oak aging this wine has a medium body with sweet and silky tannins and a long finish. Perfect with richer fish, chicken and turkey. But can also be enjoyed on its own.
Vistaflores Estate: Altamira de Los Andes Reserve Malbec 2017
Another wine festival sell out (almost a fight over the last bottle) this is a very classy, well made Malbec from Uco Valley with 14 months French oak aging. A deep purple red in colour with a fantastic black fruit nose. Full bodied , long finish and smooth with balanced acidity. Perfect pair for roast dinners with lamb, beef or mushrooms. Honey roasted vegetables or sage, rosemary, onion and garlic flavours all work well. Or save it for cheese...
