Mendozan malbec is celebrated in South America, such as produced by leading winery Trapiche. Yet the continent has much more to offer. Discover Garzon’s exciting wines from coastal Uruguay, with fantastic expressions of albarino, an aromatic white grape from the Iberian Peninsula, and tannat, hailing originally from south-west France. And further south, pinot noir has found a unique expression in Patagonia, Argentina, exemplified by our wine of the year: Chacra’s perfect 2018 Treinta y Dos pinot noir from old vines planted in 1932. Come and learn how South American wines challenge the rankings with new approaches.
