Uco Valley Wine

This region -which has experienced the greatest growth in the past few years- comprises the departments of Tunuyán, Tupungato and San Carlos and is located in the Center-West of Mendoza. The valley’s climate is rigorous in the winter and warm in the summer, with cool nights. The annual average temperature is 14.2º C. It has over 20,000 hectares of vineyards lying at the foot of the Andes Mountain range. The region is known for its altitude vineyards and for its aptitude for high quality grape growing, which leads to excellent white and red wine production. However, red varieties are predominant in the region. Moreover, the good acidity level achieved by the grapes bestows a good aging capacity on the wines of the Uco Valley. The white varieties most developed in the region are: Chardonnay, Semillón, Torrontés and Pedro Giménez. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Tempranillo and Bonarda stand out among red varieties. Even Pinot Noir and Syrah find the altitude conditions of the Uco Valley suitable for optimal ripening.

  • Alamos Malbec Mendoza 2014


    Char and black pepper on the nose with a chalky ripe raspberry note. In the mouth it's a mix of red and black fruit, mostly raspberry and blackberry, medium bodied and approachable, with good acidity. Good spice around the edges pops in the mouth and warms the finish along with vanilla and toast.86 pts Read More

    Mainly dark fruit on the nose and palate. Ripe black cherry, blackberry, a bit of tar, decent acidity and medium to light tannins. The finish is medium. Not overly complex or layered but fairly well balanced. Read More

  • Diamandes Perlita Malbec Syrah 2012


    With the color of deep burgundy this Malbec (80%)/Syrah (20%) blend is quite spicy and tickles the nose a little with smoky aromas and an abundance of ripe dark slightly sour cherries. I was excited to taste it. I would have thought it was going to be mild on the tongue but my first taste had quite a bite as it lingers for just a moment. It ... Read More

  • Uco Valley. The Next Napa . It's still possible to get a feel for what Napa was like before the hordes arrived... A superb wine region with high altitude vineyards and mountains. It is tempting to the senses! Source: Mendoza Holidays (www.mendozaholidays.com)
