Maipú Wine

Maipu is a subregion of Mendoza, part of the larger Cuyo region in Argentina. It is situated just a few miles from the Mendoza river, which serves as irrigation for many of its vineyards planted in the alluvial (sand over clay) soil.

This, along with Lujan de Cuyo, is considered one of the most important wine regions within Mendoza. Malbec is the main grape grown for red wine, which has seen an increase in modern, quality wine-making in recent years. Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo are other reds produced there. For whites, the area is known for growing mostly Chardonnay with some Torrontes.

  • Pascual Toso Torrontes 2010


    Age has done no harm to this excellent torrontes, which boasts a buttery texture supporting touches of burnt caramel mixed in with the usual citrus flavors. At the very edge, theres a hint of white pepper. Direct and powerful in the mouth, its a vigorous variation on the varietal! (AV 90, Read More

  • Navarro Correas Syrah Colección Privada 2005


    Thick, concentrated, and direct, this is a syrah to pair with the richest foods. Still tannic and not very sweet, its like dark jam made from the ripest plums think Cornas! (AV 85, Read More

  • Pascual Toso Cabernet Sauvignon 2007


    An earthy bouquet full of asparagus, eggplant and root vegetables followed by a rich but fleeting dose of plum jam, intriguing as it opens up. (AV 86, Read More

  • Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon Nicolas Catena 2010


    Rather unassuming, with just a slight plum bouquet and touches of licorice and blackberry in the mouth. The flavor is pleasant, certainly not overbearing, but there are undesirable tinges of tannin and bitterness that may mellow with age. (AV 86, Read More

  • Finca Flichman Dedicado 2009


    Showing inky, dark purple with red hues. The nose was highly expressive with fruity, spicy notes, showing a mix of blueberry and cherry, cinnamon, and hints of coffee grinds, violets and minerals adding depth. It caressed the palate with soft textures, balanced acidity and flavors of ripe blackberry, a dusting of dark chocolate and spice. Sweet ... Read More

  • Finca Flichman Dedicado 2009


    Black fruits here with just a touch of menthol and spices. A robust wine, a bit bigger than I usually go for. I'm thinking grilled meats with this one. Read More
