Description

Bodega Noemia A Lisa Malbec 2020 is a modern style of Malbec, a much softer, more elegant style of Malbec than many others. Malbec accounts for c. 90% of the blend with c. 10% Merlot. The wine is only part aged in oak barrels and they are used barrels. 30% is aged in cement tanks and 40% in stainless steel. As a result this is not a big oaky Malbec but a much more elegant style. The old vines in Bodega Noemia’s vineyards and those of its neighbours make for complex flavours in the wine. It tastes of refreshing red berry fruits, ripe plums, blackberries and sour cherries with hints of spice, cocoa and subtle aromas of violets. The cool climate of Patagonia and the addition of the Merlot means that Bodega Noemia A Lisa Malbec 2020 has a softer style with smooth tannins, vibrant acidity and lower alcohol than many Argentinian Malbecs. Quite full-bodied, the wine is lovely and smooth with a delicious crunchy, red fruit bite on the finish. Note – the change to the Burgundian bottle is intentional reflecting the style of the wine as a very elegant, refined, red wine rather than what is perceived to be a typical Argentinian Malbec.

 

Initially a collaboration between an Italian countess and a Danish winemaker, Bodega Noemia was set up in the Rio Negro desert region of Patagonia because of its old Malbec vines and alluvial soils. One of the southern-most wineries in the world, the winery also manages closely vineyards owned by a number of other producers in order to create a micro-economy in the community and to protect the old vines that might otherwise be ripped up to be used for other, more profitable, activities. The ethos in the vineyards and in the winery is minimal intervention. No sulphites are added and grapes are produced organically and bio-dynamically.

How to Enjoy this Wine

According to the producer “A Lisa is a very versatile wine that can be enjoyed by itself, with pasta, red or white meat, or even fish.”

 

Serve at: 15 – 18°C

Producer's Notes

“All of the grapes come from producers in the Mainqué area with whom we have long-term lease contracts and whose vineyards are managed by our agricultural team throughout the year. The average age of these ancient clones in leasing is 40 years. The integration of these local producers allows us to contribute to the micro-economy of our community so as to help protect the heritage of these ancient vineyards, which permanently run the risk of being ripped off to use the land for other activities.”

Awards

“Savory spices, dried herbs and stems on the nose with earthy blackberries and cranberries. Medium-to full-bodied with powdery tannins and savory, spicy berry fruit and some herbal accents.”

 

93 points – Decanter
“An easygoing Malbec (which also contains 9% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc) from Mainqué in Río Negro, Patagonia. It very much embodies the kind of fresh, welcoming red that many Argentinian wineries are aiming to produce these days. Bright violet in the glass, the aromatic profile features fresh plum and cherry, with hints of herb and balsamic notes. Light and voluminous with lovely freshness and gentle tannins, it will go well chicken, fowl and pork.”
