"The 2013 A Lisa was from a fresh, cool growing season in Río Negro. The grapes fermented in stainless steel destemmed but uncrushed. Only 20% of the wine matured in barrel while the rest was kept in stainless steel until bottling just before the next harvest.

Item Description

Wine Advocate 92
"The 2013 A Lisa was from a fresh, cool growing season in Río Negro. The grapes fermented in stainless steel destemmed but uncrushed. Only 20% of the wine matured in barrel while the rest was kept in stainless steel until bottling just before the next harvest. It’s mostly Malbec with 9% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot, a mixture of estate-grown grapes in their property in the desert in the Valle Azul, and others from leased vineyards in Mainque. The nose is extremely fresh, floral and elegant, with notes of bright cherries and even some reminiscences of blood oranges. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine, slightly grainy tannins and great freshness, quite light on its feet. This is drinking very nicely now, but has great balance to develop in bottle. Superb quality for the price. 80,000 bottles produced."~L.G.

Wine Spectator 90
"A firm and savory style, with a lively mix of white pepper, red currant and plum tart flavors supported by fresh acidity. Mineral and graphite accents pervade the juicy finish, revealing accents of raspberry. Malbec. Drink now through 2017"~K.M.

Vinous Media 90
Bright red-ruby. Aromas of raspberry, smoked meat, spice box, flowers and minerals had me thinking of both Syrah and Gevrey-Chambertin. At once seamless and energetic, showing terrific definition and lift to its rather wild flavors of dark berries, smoked meat and sandalwood. Sappy, savory Malbec with suave tannins and clinging red fruit and smoke flavors.~S.T.

James Suckling 90
"A red with lots of spice, pepper and blackbery character. Distinct. Full to medium body, lightly chewy and a savory finish. Lots of bright character too. Drinkability with interest. A "drink me" wine. Malbec with a splash of merlot."~J.S.

Bodega NoemiaBodega Noemia de Patagonia is an authentic project that brought Contessa Cinzano and Hans Vinding-Diers into the remote Rio Negro Valley of Patagonia. In 2000, they were inspired by the potential of the region after discovering exceptional wines from the 1930's and 1940's, cellared at the oldest winery in the area. A scouting mission of the Rio Negro Valley ensued, resulting in the purchase of the semi-abandoned Bodega Noemia property. At 39 degrees latitude, Bodega Noemia is one of the southernmost wineries in the world. This region has a history of glaciers, poor soil and, limestone-rich bedrock. Flowing from the Andes, the Limay and Neuquen rivers bring mineral-rich water to this arid zone. A desert climate at heart, a large thermal amplitude graces the property, and the Andes bestow constant winds on the area, virtually eliminating the threat of most diseases. Combined, these factors create an environment that is ideal for making mineral-rich wines with vibrant hints of fruit. The restoration of the vineyards began in 2001 with the goal of crafting fine wines that expressed the unique desert terroir. First planted in 1932, the original pre-phylloxera rootstock of the vineyards was carefully resuscitated, and Vinding-Diers oversaw the estate's Massale selections in order to create vineyard compositions tailored to the land. To further amplify the terroir's signature in the final wines, fermentation was carried out using only indigenous yeasts. The comittment to protecting this unique patrimony also led to the decision to cultivate almost all Bodega Noemia wines according to Argencert organic and Demeter biodynamic standards. The time and effort put into the vineyard has paid off with exceptional wines. The debut of Bodega Noemia's 2001 vintage was a critical success and each subsequent vintage has followed with impressive results, making Bodega Noemia one of the most acclaimed properties in South America.
