Item Description

Vinous Media 94
The 2020 Malbec J Alberto is a Malbec with a 5% dash of Merlot from an old vineyard first planted in 1935 in Mainqu, Ro Negro. Half aged in cement and 600 liter barrels, the rest was kept in stainless steel. Bright purple in the glass, fresh cherries are intertwined in the nose with violets, black tea and hints of country herbs as part of a substantial but delicate profile. The aging process plays a supporting role but offers no more than a faint whiff of orange petit fours. On the palate, the balance is precise with delicate weights and measures in which the flow is lean and releases an energy toward the end that fades entropically like a
wind-up toy. An elegant wine.

View all from Bodega Noemia
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.
