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.

  • Passo Doble. Masi Tupungato 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A 2011 Malbec, Corvina blend from Mendoza, Argentina. Deep ruby color with mid-rim variation. Dark fruits hints of cherry and raspberry with a hint of sweet & spice. It has a long finish on the palette and balanced acidity. This wine will mature over time (peak time 2016-2019). Best served chilled to 65 degrees, and served with lasagna. Read More

  • Gouguenheim Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Watching the explosive rise in popularity of Malbec from Argentina has been simply astonishing. Though you would think from what you see and read that there is precious little else produced in Argentina. Is the runaway success of Malbec for Argentina going to mirror that of Australian Shiraz? (In other words, are people going to think that Argen... Read More

  • Catena Alta Chard Argentina 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is well balanced. Green apples, pears, and pineapple. Long finish. Buttery texture. This wine evokes the best of the old and new world styles of chardonnay. We love chardonnay. This bottle for $25.00 is a great value. It holds its own against any of the big California Chards (Nickel & Nickel, ZD, Dumol, etc;) Try it you'll love! Read More
