Ever since it was first described as 'the end of the earth' by Charles Darwin - ironic in a way, since it inspired a book called 'On the Origin of Species' - Patagonia has had mythic status for its remoteness and awe-inspiring beauty. It is now emerging as a source of unique wines with a too-good-to-be-true story - one of the least populated and least polluted habitats on earth, the Andes, endless windswept plains, dinosaur bones, penguins - and now, astonishingly, wine.

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.See detailed press review

Bodega Noemía is a very special collaboration between Danish winemaker Hans Vinding-Diers (cousin of Peter Sisseck of Pingus), and Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano. The project was inspired by the discovery of a small plot of old vine, pre-phylloxera malbec in the Río Negro Valley. From that, they've produced a small range of malbec, malbec blends, rosé, and cabernet sauvignon. A Lisa is a blend of malbec with nine percent merlot and one percent petit verdot, with a blend of estate and neighbouring fruit. Tight and chiseled, with pure black cherry, plum, thorny blackberry, housed by finely gritty tannins. Acidity is taut and direct, keeping this streamlined and narrow, tucked into its 13.5 degree frame.See detailed press review
