From: Patagonia, Argentina
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: Alpataco is an indigenous bush that symbolizes the tenacity of life in the Patagonian steppe. In the glass, you’ll discover aromas of red fruits (raspberries, strawberries) along with more earthy notes and a hint of cocoa and vanilla. Medium-bodied, round, and fruity with soft tannins, this is a new world wine to please an old world palate! We recommend serving with a slight chill.
Pairing: This is one of those red wines that can pair successfully with fish!
This charming, understated Pinot Noir from Patagonia is extremely versatile and delicious! Though you’ll immediately discover this for yourself once you open the bottle, there are two main things to note:
1. San Patricio del Chanar, a new viticultural region in Patagonia (there are only 14 wineries in Patagonia), is home to unparalleled conditions for growing top-quality grape varieties. Light stony soils, generous streams of pure water, intense sunlight, and a substantial diurnal temperature difference all contribute to make this the next important wine region to emerge from Argentina.
2. The Schroeders, a European family deeply rooted in Patagonia and well-known for their solid enterprising profile, approached this ambitious 120-hectare project by planting such varieties as Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Cabernet Sauvignon for the red grapes and Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay for the white grapes.
