Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, February 2015 – “Pale, bright, copper-tinged orange. Restrained aromas of strawberry, watermelon and fresh herbs. A faint touch of sweetness (six grams per liter) lifts the wine’s subtle red fruit and saline flavors, with a touch of minerality giving the back end a tactile quality. I like the balance between the subtle red fruit, lees and mineral components. Supple, nuanced sparkling wine from a winery that was established in 2004 with the objective of creating quality bubblies for the high-end market.”
90 pts The Wine Advocate
The NV Cuvee Reserve Extra Brut from fruit from Tupungato in the Uco Valley, a fresh, high altitude zone ideal for the production of sparkling wines, surprised me with its complex aromas of meat broth (something I always link to umami), no doubt more complex given the 24 months in contact with its lees. The palate is light to medium-bodied, with plenty of acidity and freshness that more than compensate the six grams of residual sugar. A great sparkling.
