This wine is from Atamisque’s own vines in the Uco valley. It’s a very good example of a Pinot Noir in our opinion. The winemaker has left it unoaked, just as young Pinot should be. Pinot Noir from Argentina is on the up, so try this one before they start to get more expensive. It’s not at the Marlborough end of the scale but definitely gives some Burgundy wines a run for their money.
91 / 100 Tim Atkin ARGENTINA 2016 Special Report (2015 vintage):
Aimed at the Pinot Noir drinker who doesn’t want to pay Grand Cru (or even village level) prices, this juicy, charming, unoaked red is sweet, supple and very attractive, with refreshing acidity and raspberry and wild strawberry fruit.
