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.

  • Domaine Jean Bousquet Bousquet Rose 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Decent Argentina rose, fairly light in body and flavor with slight touches of strawberry, pomegranate and cherry. Decent acidity but a rather short finish. Read More

  • Finca Flichman Red Bordeaux Blend Paisaje de Tupungato 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Spicy aroma, smoky entry followed by deep plums, raisins and a nice trigger of tannins. Taste lays and finishes well on the upper palate. Read More

  • Trumpeter Torrontes 2009

    Snoothrank:

    A fulsome, velvety feel in the mouth bears along a river of sweet apricot, whose presence is just detectable in the mild bouquet as well. The wine would be fine chilled, but at a higher temperature all of its luxurious richness comes through. (AV 89, http://argovino.com/?p=1134) Read More

  • Gouguenheim Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Wine review by Nickrueter


  • Achaval Ferrer Finca Altimira Malbec 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This wine develops in a very special way after the cork is pulled. First theres funk mixed with a hint of floral perfume in the nose, then an intense flavor of dark chocolate and coffee, roughly finished with racy tannins. Then, after a few hours, or even a day, the flavor softens and becomes richer, with notes of violet and black grapes not a ... Read More

  • Catena Alta Chardonnay 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A finely structured wine, if not generous. The dark honey color is certainly appealing, as is the mix of floral and toasted flavors conveyed to both nose and mouth (where they are joined by touches of anise), but the overall character is still rather austere.
