Wine from Patagonia, the southern part of Argentina, is quite rare. I wrote about Bodega Chacra a few years back, and since then the quality and recognition has gone through the roof. It peaked a couple of months back when one of their top cuvees received 100 points from a couple of well recognised wine journalists.
Our wine of the week is their Best Buy and a bottle of exceptional quality. But before we dive in to the tasting notes, take a moment to look at these images from Patagonia. It was shot back in 2014, but the scenery still makes an impression, and gives you a good idea on what landscape the grapes of these wines thrive in.
