Tupungato Wine

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.

  • Andeluna Tupungato Reserve Malbec Malbec 2005


    Grownup flavors in this fully matured in the bottle wine, not for a newbie. Aromas of cherries. Tasting is of coffee flavored cherries. Unsweet berry with a slight floral quality is also in the mix of varied flavors such as slight caramel, figs and nutmeg.After about a half hour of the bottle being opened the second glass proved it to be very we...

  • Achaval Ferrer Malbec Mendoza 2010


    Had it on an Argentinian flight. It smells of dark fruits berries. The tannins was a tad too much for me and I did not like the woodiness it had. The earthy mineral taste was there but it was not bad. It is not exactly an easy wine. Read More

    Below average Mendoza Malbec. Not a very high concentration of fruit or oak. Very unbalanced. High acidity with low tannins. Read More

  • Masi Tupungato Passo Doble 2009


    Rum raisin aroma, very deep and powerful, with a note of red pepper and some black fruits that come out after it's opened up. Smooth attack with nice rounded tannins, kind of a hot and spicy finish. Read More

  • Masi Tupungato Passo Doble 2009


    Deep blackberry and plum fruit with raisin and earth on the nose. Lush and rich, well balanced and smooth, with good acidity and savory notes to balance the black fruit. Finishes up a little quick, but is very pleasant. Read More

  • Malbec Tupungato Valley Tupun 2008


    This has the "look" of the typical Argentinean malbec with the deep ruby color, but it doesn't taste like it. The first notes I got were musky and bitter. The wine was definitely much more earthy than what I was used to in a South American malbec. I actually thought the bottle might be bad, so I opened a second and had the same experience. ...
