Wine critic, Jamie Goode (The Sunday Express – Lifestyle Section) goes on a voyage of discovery to Argentina.
“I’m just back from exploring Argentina’s thriving wine scene where I made some great new discoveries. While the South American country is justly famous for its excellent reds made from the Malbec grape, there’s a lot more going on. Here I’m looking beyond Malbec to see what else this intriguing country can produce”
Don Cristóbal 1492 Bonarda 2016, Mendoza (14% alcohol) – £9.50 from http://www.tanners-wines.co.uk (01743 234455)
“Bonarda is one of the most widely planted red grapes in Argentina and this example is fresh and fruity with aromatic cherries and bright berries. It combines ripe, sweet fruit with a juicy freshness and some meaty richness”
