ABOUT THE WINERY: CHAÑARMUYO
We started at the end of 2001. We always believe, we dream, we bet. Although sometimes we feel defeated, we never lower our arms. The town quintupled its population and the young people of Chañarmuyo returned. And they settled down to form families, raise children, educate them. They grew up believing and also betting. A dream came true, with patience and humility. The work was great and did not loosen up. And in the wine we were new, in a new place. We had to learn a lot, from the best. And we hire the best. Today we are a "company", without thinking for a moment about abandoning our philosophy of feeling part of the community and protagonists of a dream. We have consecrated the work as a formidable vehicle for training and personal fulfillment. Work, investment and human virtue is the formula. In respect and harmony with those around us. Learning from the best, but demanding. Believing and asking God every day enlightens us to be a little better. Giving thanks, always. We have very good wines, some think they are the best in their segment. And we are in many markets around the world. From Chañarmuyo. For less than 20 years. From scratch, high-end wines.
OUR SOMELIER REVIEW
Don’t be confused by the price, this wine gives you more for less!
In the last 30 years, Argentina has worked a lot on their Cabernet Francs. You can find exceptional selections for every price, most of them coming from Mendoza.
I was so excited to try one from a least-common area: La Rioja. Not to be confused for the region in Spain, this is a province north from Mendoza where we have high altitude vineyards and passionate people making unique wines.
I found this wine very pleasant and not pretentious (these days that’s not easy to say about most wines!).
The moment I poured it into my glass the wine was honest. The color was deep purple and brilliant. The smell is nice with aromas of vanilla, wet stones, baked red and black forest fruits, prunes, and in the back of my palette a bit of green bell pepper and eucalyptus.
The palate is so soft with a pleasant sweetness taking me back to the fruits.
I could see myself having an Arugula Salad with parmesan, cranberries, and a juicy duck breast!
This wine is a must have in your wine cellar.
