Vintage notes

2014 - Mendoza : 7 / 10 (superior)

This was a difficult year for most vintners. It started with a Frost and finished with a cold weather harvest. Yet, despite these apparent difficulties the vintage is rated well as a not so hot weather also has its advantages. The wines are aromatic and fresh, the alcohol level is medium rather than high. These are excellent food wines.


Tasting notes

Bright ruby colour. Fresh and lasting aromas. Mint, ripe American cherry and light scent of fragrant berry fruits. With a supple attack and fresh, well-integrated acidity. Well-rounded taste with soft, silky  tannins. The wine is medium bodied. Drink now or later.

Bodegas y Vinedos Huarpe S.A., Agrelo

Huarpe_03_resize.jpgThe Huarpe Estate was created in 2003 by two brothers: Max and Jose Toso. As such it would be a rather short story were it not for the fact that the Toso brothers represent a long family history which started more than 125 years ago in 1880. It was then that Pasqual Toso, their famous ancestor, arrived in Mendoza from Piedmont in Italy. Having been part of the family's wine business in Italy he quickly recognized the potential for producing excellent wines in the area and soon created the first Toso winery in Mendoza.   

The two brothers grew up in the family's wine business in Argentina, but they had their own ideas about what they wanted to create and how to achieve their goals. Before starting their own estate they wanted to broaden their repective expertise internationally. So Jose, who is the winemaker, worked as a chief winemaker in Italy and Germany for 10 years while Max, who is the General Manager, worked as a consultant at McKinsey & Co. in Argentina and the US for several years. When they felt ready in 2003 to start their new venture they located it in Agrelo. The village, at a height of 900 ~1,000 meters, is situated at the foothills of the Andes Mountain Range. The terroir is considered to be one of the very best in Argentina producing wines which are concentrated, well-structured, complex and possess excellent ageing potential.   Huarpe_04_resize.jpgThe brothers also make wines in the Maipu area and the Uco Valley, two other excellent vine growing areas. Their main focus is to create wines expressing well the different terroirs and growing conditions. Their aim is to create wines which are elegant rather than highly extracted and powerful as is still quite common.  

Huarpe_06_resize.jpgThe estate was named "Huarpe" to honour the Huarpe People, the peaceful and hardworking natives that inhabited Mendoza's vast territory before the Spanish conquest in the 16th century. In the same spirit the different kinds of wines produced are named in the Huarpe lanuage after the terroir in wich the vines grow.
