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.

  • San Felipe Tinto Mendoza 2013


    This wine of violet color, has no knowledge of the word subtlety. It enters the nose with a fruity force. Full bodied, concentrated, sligthly sweet and tannic. Like a punch, sudden, shocking, but short lived Read More

Still well structured on the palate despite its age, even strongish, clear pepper. Really balanced and nice. A few... Read More

Round and plump up front, the rich plum and blackberrry fruit is nicely supported by integrated acids and rounded tannins. Theres some obvious wood on the mid-palate acting... Read More

  • 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
