Mendoza, Argentina; 14.5% ABV
$5 at the Richmond and Berkeley, CA, stores on 24 May
I don’t recall liking Argentinian whites in general, but this wine is very good for the price. Starting with its nice nose, it shows flavors of ripe pineapple, lemon, cherimoya, and mild green lime. While the finish is slightly rough, the wine is otherwise elegant and tasty. I liked it better warmed a bit from fridge temperature, when it seemed smoother and more integrated. I would have liked to see how it tasted the next day, but the bottle didn’t last that long.
Update 16 July: This wine appears to be rapidly going downhill. Please see comments below from Lim13 and myself.
