Argentina: New High-Altitude, High-Precision Whites

Captivating. That’s the word for many of the white wines being produced in Argentina today. A new kind of Chardonnay is being crafted in the mountain vineyards of Argentina based on lively freshness and pure, ripe fruity flavors. The interpretations of these extreme terroirs being developed by an insightful group of producers are raising the bar for the variety in a country best known for its Malbec. Meanwhile, old Sémillon vines are being rediscovered in the more traditional regions and some excellent sparkling wines are popping up all over the country.

2016 Di Majo Norante Ramitello ($19.00) 90

2016 Di Majo Norante Ramitello, 90 points

The 2016 Ramitello shows a dark, floral and alluring bouquet of crushed violets, blackberries, vanilla bean and hints of animal. Velvety in texture yet lifted in feel, the 2016 leans toward the savory spectrum. Brisk acids maintain energy as fine tannins slowly mount. (EG)
