Something Other than Malbec

Since New World wines started to become commercially viable in the 1980's many of the wine producing nations have tried to create a signature style of wine for which they are recognised on a global scale. Obvious examples of this are New Zealand Sauvignon, South African Pinotage and Argentinean Malbec.

Pioneering winemaker Patricio is best known for his Malbecs (he currently produces four different expressions) his other wines are also worth serious consideration. 

Torrontes

Whilst Argentina may be famed for its big full bodied reds it also has a signature white variety. Torrontes makes a highly aromatic wine which when made well combines racy acidity and vibrant tropical flavours to create a superbly balanced drink which will be a perfect partner to white fish dishes. 

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is a notoriously difficulty grape to cultivate due largely to the vine producing large bunches of small berries with very thin skins. This leaves them at severe risk of damage through frost, disease, excessive heat and hail which is an ongoing concern in the area of Mendiza where Patricio's vineyards are situated. In order to combat this threat Patricio opted to cover vast swaiths of his most vulnerabel vineyards in a special netting which simultaneously protects the vines from hail and pests but allows the circulation of air and moisture.
