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.

  • Achaval Ferrer Mendoza Malbelc Finca Mirador 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Very interesting wine. Light to medium bodied. Smokey, almost oak like taste with a hint of silky chocolate. Very smooth and balanced. Flavors will certainly surprise you and bewilder you. The length is pleasant and adequate. One of the best red's I've had in my short wine career (I'm 21). Read More

  • Achaval Ferrer Mendoza Malbelc Finca Mirador 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This dark, extracted wine possesses a smoky, peppery bouquet redolent of blackberry compote and bacon fat. That bacon fat note leads off the palate, but quickly gives way to ripe and rich black cherry flavors, with some mocha spice, oak and cardamom peeking in near the finish. Long, lush, rich and concentrated, the aftertaste dances with toast ... Read More

  • Alamos Ridge Malbec 2001

    Snoothrank:

    This was my very first malbec recommended by my favorite local restaurant. This goes great with ceviche and pretty much any meat dish. I especially enjoy it on its own curled up with a good book. Read More
