I've gotta put my hand up and say, while I have consumed a LOT of Argentinian wine, this is my first ever sparkling. Produced via Charmat Method with 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chenin Blanc I've not much idea what to expect other than its an 'Extra Brut Espumante'.
It's a bright gold colour which is a dead giveaway for a warm climate sparkling wine, or an aged Champagne, which this is clearly not.
On the nose I don't really get much to be honest, which im not surprised about, on the palate it's bone bone bone dry with some apricot and peach with a surprising balance between fruit and acid which is was not expecting giving the acid profile of a lot of entry level sparkling Chenin based wine.
The finish is clean and of medium length. I'm not sure what the LUC is going to be on this wine but if the price is right I can see a market forit for sure. Well done!

I was after something something a little different and this is what I was suggested at LaVigna bottle shop on Walcott St. An interesting sparkler from Argentina made of equal quantities of Chenin Blanc & Pinot Noir.

A warm yellow colour on the eye. Aromas of apple shortcake, lemon sherbet and honeyed almonds. Pleasant palate with an extremely smooth mousse. The acidity is nicely balanced with the fruit and heck, I'd definitely drink it again. It was s favourite amongst the crowd I was with.

Very good, but didn't quite live up to prosecco or cava in my opinion:-) maybe I need to try some more!😜
