We love the new wave of beautiful wines coming out of Argentina. The quality have changed tremendously over the last decade, reaching new highs every year. Top end producers like Catena Zapata, Bodega Chacra and Zuccardi are some of the winemakers continuously raising the bar.
Another stayer on the Argentinean wine scene is Bodega Weinert. Founded in the early 70s, delivering its first harvest in 1977, Bodega Weinert has always strived for quality wines. But where other producers have gotten quite pricy over the last years, Weinert has remained quite decent. They produce a wide variety of bottles, mainly focusing on reds. We’ve selected the “Carrascal” which is a classic Bordeaux blend with 40-40 Cabernet Sauvignon-Malbec and 20% Merlot. Grapes are sourced in the Mendoza region and the wine is stored for 24 months on oak. It’s a big and beautiful wine, with both power and elegance. And the price is just ridiculously low.
A pro tip is to have a broader look at the Weinert wines available at Vinmonopolet. You can easily get 10-12 year old Cabernets, Merlots and Malbec’s at 250-300kr. Amazing wines at a fantastic prices.
