Once again we’ve found another outstanding newsletter value from Argentina, and it’s not from Mendoza
and it’s not Malbec. This is remarkably fresh and rich Pinot Noir from the wild landscape of Patagonia,
the southern ‘cone’ of South America, one of the most sparsely populated regions in the world. Here, the
pioneering Schroeder family has created an oasis of vineyards on the desolate, arid hillside plateau east of
the Andes Mountains where the high altitude and wide temperature fluctuation between warm days and cool
nights, frequent winds and low humidity provide an ideal setting for vine-growing and top quality grapes.
The altitude and climate of the Neuquén River Valley are the natural reasons for the pronounced aromas and
precise fruit flavor of this vibrant wine, a truly distinctive and delicious expression of Pinot Noir hand-picked
from the Schroeder family’s own vineyards.
