Specialist Importers Trade Tasting (SITT) Manchester

February 27, 2020

Specialist Importers Trade Tasting (SITT) Manchester

Great tasting, great wines and great to catch up with friends, old and new! Highlights from the show include the Agustin Lanus wines from Condor. I've discovered Criolla and there's no turning back. I love this grape and the Sunal Illogico 2018 was simply outstanding. The grapes come from a vineyard that sits at the extreme altitude of 2700 metres above sea level. It's packed full of wild strawberry notes, hints of dried roses and dash of spice. It's unoaked so the fruit is fresh and persistent. An absolute joy of a wine.

My second highlight was the Ver Sacrum Gloria S Garnacha 2016 from Las Bodegas, which Laurie is holding in the photo. Named after the queen of the Silent Screen, Gloria Swanson, this is Garnacha at its best. Elegant red fruits, a hint of spice and perfectly balanced. 

Sadly you can't buy these wines from us just yet, but they will be here very soon! If you would like to be notified on their arrival, please email info@tasteargentina.co.uk.

Delighted to announce the arrival of the Rutini Gewürztraminer. A delicate, off-dry wine full of orchard fruits and spicy notes. Gewürz actually translates to 'spice' in German, which sums this wine up perfectly. The grape's pink skin can produce a wine with a copper hues, but the Rutini is a soft, golden colour.

There's no doubt Argentina is renowned for its excellent Malbec, but Cabernet Sauvignon is really starting to shine in the foothills of the Andes. The cooler, higher altitude in these wine regions extends the ripening period, which is especially important for the late ripening Cabernet Sauvign
