    Potrero Chardonnay Valle de Uco 2020
  • Vinos de Potrero focuses its production on red wines but, when it tries its hand at making a white wine, it shows that it has all the makings of a good one. The one presented here, in fact, according to the judgment of several international wine critics, is one of the most interesting expressions of New World whites. Indeed, this Chardonnay from the Gualtallary region combines the purity of the fruit with the mineral notes of the terroir of origin. A wine that manages to be fresh and easy to drink without lacking in complexity. The grapes come from a vineyard planted in 2012, characterized by a steep slope and perfect northern exposure (perfect since we are in the other hemisphere). This ensures good sunshine and ripeness. In the winery, 10% of the wine is fermented in used French barrels. 4 months in steel tanks. Fermentation is initiated by indigenous yeasts and continued by inoculation of selected cultured yeasts. After vinification, for the maturation stage, 20 percent of the mass is placed in French oak barrels for a period of six months before final blending and bottling.

    It all started in 2008 when two friends bought their first vineyard. Thus was born Vinos de Potrero, which officially debuted on the market in 2012 with its first label. Since then the company has grown to become an interesting entity in Argentina, with several clients in other parts of the world as well. All grapes for Vinos de Potrero come from vineyards in Gualtallary, Uco Valley. Today the winery has four small neighboring vineyards with similar, though not identical, soil profiles and exposure. Malbec grapes are produced here, which with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc are used in the production of the estate wines. A curiosity: the "potrero" in Argentina is a makeshift soccer field, one where world-class talents are not infrequently raised. Just as from a dry, pothole-filled field a star can be born that will shine in the greatest stages of the world, so from poor, stony soil, the vine can give birth to wines that are extraordinary in their concentration, freshness and minerality. And this is precisely the philosophy of Vinos de Potrero.
