A 3 bottle Snapshot Case exploring 'classic' examples of South American wines. Our Snapshot Case of South American 'Essentials' gives a great overview of the mainstream grape varieties that South America has to offer.
Starting off in Chile we have a striking blackcurrant and herby example of high altitude Chilean Carmenere (a grape which Chile has claimed as its own). Staying in Chile we also have a carefully oaked and minerally Chilean Chardonnay. These grapes come from Aconcagua valley vineyards near the Pacific coast so benefit from the cooling breezes which give the grapes their crisp acidity. Popping just over the boarder into Argentina now, we've got an inviting and elegant unoaked Argentina Malbec from the Tupungato sub-region of Mendoza. The vineyards of the Tupungato are among the most elevated in Mendoza's Uco Valley and are great for producing the fresher, slightly lighter, version of Malbec that they guys at Bodega Atamisque are aiming for.
So learn and discover the 'Essential' wines of South America with our 3 bottle Snapshot Case.
