Patagonia provides a very different Argentinian wine style for those raised on the heat of Mendoza: at 39 degrees of latitude, with sun-filled days and cold nights, the High Valley of the Rio Negro gives wines strong on finesse and aromatic character. If Rio Negro is a relative newcomer to many people’s wine repertoires, Humberto Canale has experience on its side. The winery was established as long ago as 1909, taking its name from its founder, the pioneering engineer who did so much to develop Patagonian agriculture. More than 100 vintages and four generations later, Guillermo Barzi Canale is at the helm, overseeing a range of elegant wines that run the gamut from Pinot Noir to Malbec and Cabernet Franc, not forgetting a pair of excellent value white and red blends. TASTING: The wine is bright ruby in colour with purple reflections. On the nose this wine is bursting with and intense mix of ripe red berries combined with hints of spice, jam, honey and vanilla. It is full bodied with rich jammy fruit flavours, soft tannins and a long finish. This wine has been barrel fermented and is totally unfiltered.
