Give this Patagonian Pinot Noir a try!

(By Marina La Forgia)

Dear Pinot Noir lovers… I have a secret to reveal to you 😉 Do you know about this wine from the south of Argentina? If not yet… here it is!

I had a great pleasure tasting this Pinot Noir Rebel from Bodega Secreto Patagonico, because it has everything to be, in my opinion, a perfect exponent of the typicity and the terroir. It comes from San Patricio del Chañar, a region in Patagonia which is beginning to be very recognized by the quality of its wines, and this Pinot Noir therefore has all the character and expression that this red grape cultivated almost everywhere in the world offers us especially in this magnificent South American terroir. It overflows with notes of wild red fruit mixed with some subtle and very pleasant aromas of leather and tobacco. And although it is an intense and tasty wine on the palate, it is also a very fresh, light and elegant red wine, with a good persistence and a balanced and delicate acidity. Let yourself be charmed, like me, by this refreshing Argentine pinot, which is, in addition, an unbeatable value for money. Available at the SAQ for CAD 16.

¡Salud por los vinos de mi querido país!

Vetiver Viura, a delight from Rioja

(By Marina La Forgia) Let me introduce you to this very pleasant white wine from Bodegas Ontañon made with Viura, indigenous grape from Rioja. Vetiver is a good mix of terroir expression and winemaking. It combines intense tropical fruits aromas with some buttery and smoky notes that make it very original, onctuous and rich without losing any elegance and delicacy in the palate. Yes, it's a 2014 vintage which means "an aged white", and it really resumes the authentic Rioja style. However, at the same time this Vetiver is an innovative and audacious type of wine that I really loved to discover. It's good to get out of the comfort zone sometimes, wine tasting speaking...right?

¡Tres Picos y un super Garnacha!

🇪🇸 Como me gusta la fuerza de los Garnacha españoles…y los de la denominación Campo de Borja, en el valle del Ebro, me encantan. Aquí, uno de mis favoritos disponibles en Quebec, el Tres Picos de Bodegas Borsao (SAQ $19,95), un vino generoso y envolvente, de esos que se muerden en vez de beberse. ¿A qué se debe su gran intensidad? A su terruño. Es un vino que proviene de una región vinícola de clima continental extremo y excepcional, con fríos inviernos y veranos calurosos y extensos. Y es allí donde los viñedos de Garnacha crecen desde hace mucho tiempo en suelos únicos a la vera de la montaña. Estas vides antiguas son la esencia de este tinto expresivo y untuoso de aromas de moras, frambuesa, cuero, hongos y pimienta. En boca, es pura fruta madura, con sabores especiados y un final persistente y envolvente. Perfecto para carnes rojas. Anímense a probarlo, vale la pena. ¡Salud! 🍷 (Marina La Forgia)

Viña Real Crianza, an authentic Rioja blend

(Marina La Forgia) I like red wines when they are fruity, fresh and elegant, but I like them most when they also have a good structure and are a genuine expression of their unique Rioja ones! The Viña Real Crianza from CVNE Bodegas is without any doubts one of these spanish reds that never disappoint. If you look for a medium bodied and delicate red wine for your tasty meals, then try this delicious blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mazuelo, aged for a minimum of 1 year in both French and American oak barrels. Intense but round, fruity but also a bit herbaceous, this Crianza is an authentic and traditional Rioja. A unique style and a sure value.
