Argentina- This Pinot Noir from Patagonia has aromas and flavors of cherry and red fruit, with subtle notes of toasted bread, and cola. Excellent balance of fruit, acidity and sweetness.
Argentine wines are considered New World wines, but actually have a rich history dating back more than 400 years. Winemaking practices were spread throughout Argentina – much as they would be later, in California – by Spanish missionaries planting vines to ensure a supply of sacramental wines. Though the growing conditions around the Andes Mountains are high and dry, these settlers used and improved upon the natives' agricultural practice, which channeled melting snow and ice from the Andean peaks to irrigate the vineyards.
