Uco Valley Wine

This region -which has experienced the greatest growth in the past few years- comprises the departments of Tunuyán, Tupungato and San Carlos and is located in the Center-West of Mendoza. The valley’s climate is rigorous in the winter and warm in the summer, with cool nights. The annual average temperature is 14.2º C. It has over 20,000 hectares of vineyards lying at the foot of the Andes Mountain range. The region is known for its altitude vineyards and for its aptitude for high quality grape growing, which leads to excellent white and red wine production. However, red varieties are predominant in the region. Moreover, the good acidity level achieved by the grapes bestows a good aging capacity on the wines of the Uco Valley. The white varieties most developed in the region are: Chardonnay, Semillón, Torrontés and Pedro Giménez. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Tempranillo and Bonarda stand out among red varieties. Even Pinot Noir and Syrah find the altitude conditions of the Uco Valley suitable for optimal ripening.

  • Antucura Malbec Vista Flores -Mendoza 2012


    New to wines and just beginning to tell different varieties apart and direct my choices. My favorites so far are Malbec. I must confess that I still prefer French Cahors to Argentinian Malbecs, but this one is pretty good. I think it will improve after a couple of years and it seems a little young currently, but still very impressive. Read More

  • Antucura Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


    I have always liked the Antucura wines. Good solid easy to predict. I think that this one needs to settle for a little longer before it comes into its own. Read More

  • Cuvelier Los Andes Coleccion Merlot 2010


    An oddly brackish note, like raw clams, dominates the nose and persists not a flaw, but unusual into the mouth, where its joined by dark plum in a strong and enduring structure. A good match for strong-tasting meats like lamb and venison! (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=1248) Read More

  • Bodega Diamandes de Uco Viognier 2010


    A straw-colored wine with smoked honey in the nose transforms into pure lemon curd, with a sharp mix of tart and sweet that blooms and then vanishes without a trace in an immaculately clean finish. Splendid and different! (AV 91, http://argovino.com/?p=670) Read More
