Pinot Gris, Santa Celina, 2012Our price: £10.35Ten years ago Jacques and Francois Lurton bought land in Vista Flores, south of Mendoza at an altitude of 1100 metres, and in Barrancas on the plateau to the east of Mendoza at an altitude of 600 metres. These terroirs were selected for the quality of their soil, climate and quantity of available water. As the land had not been previously cultivated the soils were completely free from chemicals. The soil is calcareous and the lack of organic matter happily restricts vigorous vine growth. They produce wines brimming with personality and varietal character. Quinto Malbec, Riglos 2012Our price: £17.90Riglos wines, from a beautiful wine estate called Finca Las Divas in the upcoming Gualtallary sub-district of Tupungato, is a fairly new venture. It is a collaboration spearheaded by friends and business partners Dario Werthein and Fabian Suffern, with a real scoop of talent on the wine front: oenologist Pulqui Rodriguez, Agronomist Hernán Cortegoso, and one Paul Hobbs as winemaker-consultant. Not a bad start! Most of the vines are still under 10 years old, a fact that beggars belief when you taste these magnificent specimens. There is a beguiling combination of intense fruit concentration and an under-stated quality that is impossible to ignore. The wines are gaining recognition quickly and we are confident that they will take their rightful place amongst Argentina’s finest for a very long time to come.Santa Julia Organic Malbec, Zuccardi Family, 2014Our price: £10.20A relatively young estate founded in the early 1990s, Santa Julia offers wines which are a striking example of the quality produce now being created in the Argentine region of Mendoza.
