SAVOURY / EARTHY REDS
2016 A LISA, Bodegas Noemia. Patagonia, ArgentinaOrganic
"The estate is situated in Rio Negro Valley, which is 620 miles South of Buenos Aires, 280 miles east of the Andes, 310 miles west of the Atlantic and a further 1240 miles from Tierra del Fuego. In other words, it is located in the middle of the desert. The valley’s microclimate is under the influence of two rivers deriving from the Andes, the Neuquen and the Limay which form into the Rio Negro, which throws itself into the Atlantic. The Rio Negro valley is an ex glacier which is 310 miles long and 15,5 miles large at 250 yards above sea level. In 1828, the British colonies, having observed the large amounts of water flowing down the river, decided to create channels which would irrigate the valley thus forming a type of oasis in the middle of the desert."
"Hans Vinding-Diers’ aim was to “capture the energy” of the 2016 vintage and he certainly succeeded. This is a step up on the 2015, with added finesse and perfume, youthful, floral, summer berry fruit and a long, mineral-edged finish. Very Burgundian. Drink 2019-24." Tim Atkin - 93/100.
