for this region?


Tupungato is a wine region in the Uco Valley of Mendoza, Argentina. It’s named after the town, which is surrounded by the high altitude vineyards (the name in local Huarpe means “star viewpoint”). These high locations ensure plenty of sun exposure to ripen the grapes, which benefit from a longer growing season than other locations closer to the valley floor. The Andes mountains shelter the vineyards from precipitation, however melting water that runs from the peaks is the natural source of irrigation. 
The dominant grapes cultivated are Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Torrentes.

  • Bodegas Monteviejo Malbec Vista Flores 2006


    Nose of volatiles (nail polish). In the mouth quite rich deep fruit (plum, dark berry) balanced by lively and centered acid. Palate included hints of leaves, mineral or salt, wood and leather. Finish fades of same. Body medium plus, acid medium plus, tannin medium. Dryish. Seems like a great food wine, this tasted nice. Read More

  • Trapiche Iscay Merlot Malbec 2009


    A nice red to serve slightly chilled with summer barbecue! This smells very fruity and ripe with notes of prune, plum and dark cherry with a bit of smoky oak. In the mouth this is very easy with soft tannins and a gentle sweetness coming from the spicy oak. The fruit is fresher than the nose would suggest, bright and with very soft tannins, it's...
