Bodega Noemia de Patagonia A Lisa 2021
|Brand||Bodega Noemia de Patagonia|
The bottle of the red 2019 A Lisa has changed to a Burgundy bottle. 2019 was a very good overall vintage in the zone, a very complete year with nice balance. The wine was produced with some Merlot (there's no more Petit Verdot), and no sulfur was used in the grapes, which fermented in stainless steel vats for around 10 days with soft extraction. In fact, the wine finished fermenting without skins and matured for a short time in barrel, as the wine rotated between used barriques and stainless steel. This is the "village" bottling, and it has bright red fruit aromas and a layer of spices that is subtle and nicely integrated. This is harmonious and fresh, a good introduction to that part of Patagonia that is elegant and delivers very good quality for its price. The tannin's are very fine, and there is beautiful balance. It's clean, juicy and precise, really pleasant and easy to drink. It has a vibrant palate with fresh acidity, really very impressive.
This is really creamy and delicious with sliced-plum and light earth aromas and flavors. Hints of redwood. Medium-bodied, firm and silky. Subtle and firm. Focused.
A Malbec mixed with 10% Merlot from Mainque, Río Negro, aged in 20% new barrels. Bright violet in the glass. The nose offers notes of sour cherry, plum, herbs and a novel, bloody profile. An elemental wine displaying complementary oaky hints. Rich in the mouth, it has active, gentle tannins to which the Merlot adds a little spice and texture. Juicy and medium-bodied, with acid that leaves a tingle at the back of the throat, and a long, fruity aftertaste. A classical wine.
