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.

  • Gouguenheim Cabernet Sauvignon 2010


    Overripe black cherries come across in the nose and mouth, with fulsome dark plum in the nose as well. Alas, the consistency is too thin to carry much structure, and the experience falls short of memorable. (AV 84, http://argovino.com/?p=1096) Read More

  • Catena Alta Chardonnay 2010


    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.

  • Achával-Ferrer Red Bordeaux Blend Cabernet Merlot Malbec 2010


    Classic malbec with a nose of burnt matches and ink, then bright flavors with a touch of the acrid aromas continuing in the mouth and into the finish. A great choice for malbec purists, and excellent with strong cheeses. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=461) Read More

  • Doña Paula Sauvignon Blanc Los Cardos 2012


    A 2012 Sauvignon Blanc from Mendoza, Argentina. Pale straw in color. Fruit hints of grapefruit and peach with a hint of limestone. It has a mid-finish on the palette and crisp acidity. Best served chilled to 48 degrees, and served with a grilled salmon dish. Read More

  • Passo Doble. Masi Tupungato 2011


    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


    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
