Malbec and More: Exploring Argentina’s Fabled Wine Making Heritage

Malbec and More: Exploring Argentina’s Fabled Wine Making Heritage

Argentina’s rich wine making heritage dates back to the early 16th century, putting it in an entirely different league than neighboring new-world producers Chile and Brazil. Spanish settlers planted the first specimens of Vitis vinifera in monastic vineyards throughout Argentina’s central, western and northeastern regions. Soon, an extensive agricultural irrigation system of ditches and canals, modeled after the Incas, drew water from melting Andes snowcaps into reservoirs that are still utilized to this day by vineyards granted government-regulated water licenses. Water access is crucial since most vineyards grow in semi-arid conditions with rainfall rarely exceeding 10 inches per year.

Irrigation methods evolved over time, starting with the centuries-old tradition of periodically flooding vineyards, which, along with the high altitude and low humidity, likely prevented phylloxera. Argentina had 5,000 acres of vineyards by 1873 and just several decades later, capacity mushroomed to 519,800 acres. This sudden growth was largely fueled by sweet, low-quality, high-yield Cereza, Criolla Chica and Criolla Grande table wines well into the 1970s, when soft drinks and beer thwarted its market share, spurring demand for better quality wine.

Since the 1990s, Argentina’s wine scene has continually blossomed with fine Malbecs, the rediscovery of native Torrontes grapes, and the growing of totally unexpected varietals like Riesling and Pinot Grigio, by pushing into ever higher elevations, achieving crisper, more refined and aromatic tasting experiences. Cuyo and Patagonia are the top two regions to begin exploring Argentina’s latest wine-making treasures.

Cuyo

This arid, yet fertile region of alluvial, sandy soils, often banded with substrates of clay, gravel and limestone, Cuyo (“country of deserts”) produces more than 80 percent of Argentina’s domestic wine, on vineyards totaling nearly 395,000 acres, making it not only the most prolific grape growing region in Argentina, but all of South America. Within Cuyo, Malbec is king in the vineyards of Mendoza, situated in the Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley in the Andes’ foothills between 2,800 and 5,000 feet above sea level.

It all started when wine maker Nicolas Catena Zapata first planted Malbec here in 1994. His success soon elevated Mendoza’s international stature, attracting celebrity winemakers like Paul Hobbs, Michel Rolland, Roberto Cipresso and Alberto Antonini. Although the high yielding, pink-skinned Cereza and Criolla Grande grapes that historically dominated Mendoza vineyards still account for nearly a quarter of the region’s total yield, Malbec is now the most widely planted varietal followed by Bonarda, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Tempranillo.

Characterized by a deep, ruby red color, intense fruity flavors and soft ripe tannins with a velvety finish, Argentina’s Malbec grapes grow in smaller, tighter clusters than their French cousins due to wide diurnal fluctuations, as daytime summer temperatures often exceed 104 degrees Fahrenheit and drop to 50 degrees Fahrenheit at night. Here, smaller-scale wineries are innovating beyond their Italian immigrant forebears by easing up on the oak aging process, unmasking Malbec’s countless delicate expressions while producing and blending more extraneous varietals like Barbera, Dolcetto, Freisa, Lambrusco, Nebbiolo, and Raboso.

Matervini

Only a 20-minute drive from downtown Mendoza, Santiago Achával and Roberto Cipresso formed Matervini in 2008 with a mission to celebrate and promote Malbec’s rich complexity. “Sourcing grapes from various regions each reflecting their unique personalities allows us to capture specific attributes from grapes growing in young to old geologies and from alluvial to non-alluvial soil,” notes Achaval.

When it comes to production, traditional finca viticulture and modern sustainability join forces. Solar panels generate electricity and heat, while all organic waste is composted and returned to the vineyards. They give regularly scheduled tours and Mater House accommodates up to eight guests, including one matrimonial suite and two rooms with three beds each, making it perfect for family or group stays.

The winery itself is a modern architectural masterpiece featuring floor-to-ceiling, plate-glass windows, loads of Modernist paintings on the walls and built-in terraces—perfect for drinking in the views accompanied by wine samples. A perfect start would be their Antes Andes Valles Calchaquies, a Malbec sourced from Rupestre Vineyard in Salta that’s fresh, full of fruit and has a definitive minerality projecting an underlying luscious saltiness. The only way to purchase their lineup outside Argentina is joining their Wine Club, which features free shipping to the U.S.

Casa de Uco Vineyards and Wine Resort

Casa de Uco Vineyards and Wine Resort is completely devoted to wine making. Outfitted with a spa and a pool, this property is home to seven rooms, nine suites and a number of private, in-vineyard bungalows, all designed to blend with the surrounding topography. Guests are surrouned by vineyards as far as the eye can see and, on clear days, the snow-capped Andes appear as though merely several blocks away.

For dining, Executive Chef Pablo Torres created an Uco Valley-driven, yet internationally-inspired menu honoring seasonal organic ingredients sourced from on-site gardens and local farmers. Casa de Uco also offers true Argentine cooking experiences in the vineyard over open flames, asado style. Perfect pairing opportunities include their El Salvaje 2014 Malbec fermented with wild yeast and barrel aged (more for micro-oxygenation than oaking), yielding a wine that’s lightly filtered with a more subdued acidity.

Casa de Uco offers a collaborative membership program with partial vineyard ownership and capacity for members to make their very own vine under the guidance of head winemaker Alberto Antonini. “We want to advise wine lovers who may not be wine professionals. Our private vineyard project was created for wine enthusiasts to get hands-on experience making their own wine,” says Antonini. “You can choose how much to become involved in the process, from the beginning stages of planting grapes, working alongside expert agronomists and enologists, to designing your personal wine labels and brand.”

Bodega Tapiz

Olive groves figure just as prominently as wine at Bodega Tapiz. Here, 35 acres of vineyards surround the historic grounds of Club Tapiz Hotel and Restaurant, including a circa 1890 building that was once an old wine cellar, and now hosts the salon Pour la Galerie. Featuring corridors flanked by large oak barrels and a magnificent mural by artist Sergio Roggerone, the space is also home to their olive oil processing facility and tasting room.

Seven guest rooms with private bathrooms overlook a courtyard to the front, while in back, a patio outfitted with an in-ground pool and gardens leads to their spa. When it comes to dining, Executive Chef Soledad Nardelli and her team offer a seasonal farm-to-table menu that’s simple and fresh using their house-made olive oil, herbs, and vegetables from their fincas and on-site organic garden in dishes like Rabbit in a Sauvignon Blanc Broth and Pancetta in a Melange of Pumpkin and Grapes.

Tasty vintages usher forth from their 500-barrel cellar, like their single vineyard, single parcel Tapiz Black Tears Malbec wherein stone fruit and barrel aging blend well, while their Classic Torrontes is bursting with aromas of lime, jasmine, rose and orange blossom prolonged with a refreshingly long finish.

Viña Cobos

Paul Hobbs, founding partner and winemaker of Viña Cobos, is world-renowned in part by his exploration and identification of Mendoza’s numerous terroirs, establishing himself as a leader in the single-block wine growing concept.

The second of 11 children born into a family of Upstate New York fruit farmers, Paul Hobbs gained early exposure to the concept of terroir, learning the variations in taste and texture of apples grown on the family’s farms. Armed with a degree in Chemistry and a master’s in Viticulture and Enology from UC Davis, Hobbs became one of the winemakers at Robert Mondavi Winery that made Napa Valley famous by improving the region’s strength and quality of its wines. After visiting and falling in love with Mendoza’s landscape in 1988, Hobbs once again distinguished himself by putting Malbec on the world stage as Argentina’s signature varietal.

Sustainable vineyard management at Viña Cobos achieves top-quality fruit, yielding complex elegant wines like their Malbec Chanares Estate and Volturno Marchiori Estate which display subtlety and balance. After harvesting, grapes maintain their exact identity with labels of origin, enabling staff to accurately assess and realize their potential during production and blending. Fruit handling is done more gently via gravity flow to preserve fruit sugars, allowing them to achieve optimal fermentation. This results in wines with subtle, yet powerful fruit expressions enhanced by exacting aging periods in French and American oak.

Patagonia

Thought to be derived from Magellan describing Natives who left large tracks or patagon in the snow with an earlier version of the snowshoe, Patagonia today is a region of glaciers, prime trout fishing, spectacular hiking and the world’s southernmost vineyards ranging from 1,000 to 16,000 feet above sea level.

Patagonia’s Neuquén region is renowned not only for its Pinot Noir grapes used in Argentine sparkling wines, but also excellent Chardonnay, Malbec, Semillon, and Torrontés Riojano. More recently, Cabernet Franc has gained traction with hints of red fruit, elegant tannins and distinct peppery notes. New denominations of origin are still being created here.

Soils here typically have more chalk than sand, and wines reflect the fruit more than the impact of any wine-making techniques. Shorter summers, colder winters and a higher day-to-night temperature amplitude than the rest of Argentina, along with frequent winds, provide exemplary conditions for low-yield, small bunches of thicker-skinned grapes. These factors combined with slow, prolonged berry-ripening, produce refined intensity, strong character, and definitive aromas.

Can’t-Miss Wineries

Familia Schroeder

An oasis of high-quality vines flourish in Bodega Familia Schroeder’s arid, rocky soil thanks to generous ice-melt water irrigated from three different rivers. Established in 2001, their 346 acres of vineyards produce Malbec, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Torrontés aged in 70 percent French and 30 percent American oak barrels. Now on display in the winery’s basement, Panamericansaurus Schroederi dinosaur fossils, unearthed during construction, also serve as branding for Familia Schroeder’s Saurus and Saurus Select wines.

Facing southwest, in the direction of the region’s strongest winds, the winery’s aerodynamic roof simulates an airplane wing, minimizing wind friction while providing near constant shade for the winery’s reception area. The entire operation’s avant-garde architecture is also built into the side of a slope on five different levels, accommodating each stage of the wine making process by utilizing gravity, which not only makes it environmentally friendly by requiring fewer pumps, but results in finer quality wine.

Vintages to look for here, especially when paired with dishes prepared in their on-site restaurant include their well-structured, fresh and fruity Alpataco Cabernet Sauvignon, their Familia Schroeder Blend 2011, which showcases a complex mouth feel tempered with delicate tannins, and their plumy punch Saurus Barrel Fermented Malbec 2016 which uses handpicked grapes aged for eight months in custom-toasted 60 percent American and 40 percent French oak barrels.

Bodega del Rio Elorza

The Del Río Elorza family purchased the nearly 100-acre Bodega del Rio Elorza estate in the Province of Río Negro in 2001, but it was first planted with vines at the turn of the 20th century. Starting in 2004, international wine-making consultant Hans Vinding-Diers teamed up with agronomist engineer Marcelo Casazza and enologist Agustín Ezequiel Lombroni to focus only on varietals best suited to Patagonia’s climate as well as the estate’s deep clay loam soils.

First, the abandoned vines planted nearly 100 years ago were recovered, and then new specially-selected Malbec, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay clones were planted at high density (5,500 vines per hectare). Next came a more efficient automatic drip irrigation, along with a sprinkler system to protect vines from frost. Cold winters and dry summers produce grapes that slowly and continuously ripen, reaching delectable balances of sugar and acidity, particularly as exemplified in their 2016 Chardonnay, aged in steel, sans malolactic fermentation.

Wine maker Agustín Ezequiel Lombroni says it’s all about bringing the vineyard to the glass: “I like wines undressed without the makeup and not serving the tastes of the market.” Describing his rich peppery 2016 Cabernet Franc, Lombroni is quick to point out that its minerality reflects the process of how the grape grows, rather than any particular geographical striations that may comprise the soil.

Malma

Owned by the Viola and Eurnekian families outside Neuquén’s San Patricio del Chañar, this winery capitalizes on specific grape varietals best suited to each micro terroir they’re sourced from. Malma’s extremely efficient wine-making technology enables a 475,500 gallon annual production which is remarkable considering they’re a relatively modest operation. On-site Malma Restaurant and Casa Malma lodgings are perfect for hanging your hat awhile to sample the Malma Family Reserve Malbec 2015. Its intense purplish-red hue reveals blackberry aromas with soft violet notes. Light on the palate at first then growing in intensity, ripe fruit and prunes with hints of spices and vanilla linger on the palate. Also try the Malma Family Reserve Pinot Noir 2013. This intense ruby red is structurally complex offering a delicate bouquet of berries, marmalade and coconut building into a well structured mouth feel and elegantly smooth finish. The good news here is that this level of sophistication still has eight to 10 years of aging potential. Another favorite is the Malma Universo Blend 2012; aged in French oak, this Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon blend has subtle hints of vanilla, nicely enriching the ripe plum and spicy black cherry on your palate.

Edelweiss Air Embraces Switzerland’s Hospitality and Features Unexpected Routes

Edelweiss Air Embraces Switzerland’s Hospitality and Features Unexpected Routes

Edelweiss Air

Photos Credit: Edelweiss Air

As a long-time San Diegan, I love my region. The sole exception: when I fly internationally. It is then, and only then, that I long to be a Los Angelean. True, flying in and out of LAX can be a challenge, but flying from a non-hub market like San Diego to a gateway such as LAX before even beginning an out-of-country journey can be an even greater travel test—adding an extra link to an already lengthy and unpredictable process.

So when Edelweiss Air began its bi-weekly, non-stop San Diego to Zurich route in June 2017, the Swiss Air-affiliated airline (and member of the Lufthansa group) captured my attention. In no small part due to its look; the aircraft is distinctive—a red-tipped tail featuring the well-known, white mountain flower with its name, “Edelweiss,” emblazoned along the length of the fuselage. With a fly time of just over 12 hours, the Airbus A340 plane—transporting as many as 314 passengers (27 Business Class, 76 Economy Max and 211 Economy)—promises an other-side-of-the-world change of scenery in just a half day.

The time element is certainly appealing, but of greater appeal to me, a devotee of all things Swiss, is the corporate-to-passenger pledge to “offer Swiss quality that inspires and excites” and to “apply values that are globally appreciated of the home country.”

Edelweiss Air

Introduced in June 2014, Edelweiss Business Class is known for its fully lie-flat seats that convert into 6.5-foot beds. You can even dial in your preferred cushion firmness (firm for sitting, softer for relaxing and even softer for sleeping) and for a full-blown pamperfest, there’s the massage function. Imagine relaxing in a soft seat, enjoying a meal of Ticino-style osso buco with white and green asparagus or white merlot risotto with spinach and grilled aubergine, followed by Argovian carrot cake for dessert (all traditional Swiss cuisine). Food choices are seasonal, too; September’s highlight is grilled meat, including Bauernbratwurst—a mixed grill of farmer’s sausage. Referred to as “door-to-door luggage,” it’s further possible for your baggage to be picked up from your home or hotel and delivered to your destination (when flying to and from Zurich) and even to check it at a train station.

Perks extend to Economy Max, too. They include more room and more service—up to six inches additional seat pitch and two inches extra seat recline. A big bonus is the location of the Economy Max cabin, with seating in the front section of the cabin (much like most airlines’ Business and First Class sections)—making it quicker and more convenient to enter and exit the plane.

Every market is different but the San Diego to Zurich route operates seasonally—running until September 18, 2017 and beginning again May 8, 2018. New expansions define 2018 for Edelweiss—an airline of 62 cities in 28 countries—including such short-haul destinations (from Zurich) as Mykonos, Greece; Dubrovnik, Croatia and Madeira, Portugal, and such additional long-haul U.S. destinations as Denver, Las Vegas, Tampa Bay and Orlando.

Set within the walls of a former 17th-century convent, Marc Fosh restaurant in downtown Mallorca’s Hotel Convent de la Missió has a feeling similar to that of a cloister.

A peaceful ambience permeates the space, with abundant light, a vertical garden and palm tree trunks stretching through a transparent skylight above. One white wall is adorned with a graffiti-style design by artist Guillem Nadal, featuring the words of a love poem by German romanticist Johann Hölderlin. In short, this restaurant conjures images as a promising place for food to be prepared as art and an uplifting experience.

Head chef Toni Martorell wastes no time in capturing one’s attention. He did so for us with an amuse-bouche of truffle with chickpeas, anchovies cracker and caviar, beetroot marshmallow and fennel, all set lovingly like small jewels in a wooden box layered with artificial grass. Lingering over its presentation and  flavors gives one time to decide which of the three tasting menus to choose: Degustation, the newest addition, Marc or the vegetarian option: Natural.

Marc Fosh was the first British chef in Spain to have his cuisine awarded a Michelin star. For 2015 and 2016, a star was also awarded to this restaurant, so we decided the Degustation option, with paired wines, was the perfect way to indulge in his broad range of culinary innovation.

Bite-size creations showcased the rich natural diversity of Spain’s culinary heritage, its abundance of fresh ingredients wrapped in the cloak of contemporary artistry. Memorable dishes included marinated scallop with carrot, served with a Catalan Riesling, with a hint of orange blossom and sea-fennel, as well as a refreshing surf-and-turf combo comprising cod, a traditional staple of Mallorcan cuisine, steamed and coupled with an aged beef fillet, in a broth of wild herbs, sea vegetables and saffron.

As a staple of quality Spanish cuisine is a refined rice dish, it was interesting to note that Marc Fosh uses the Bomba variety, cultivated by hand in Murcia and almost extinct until gourmet chefs recognized its suitability for paella. His sauce for a succulent rice dish comprises a caramel of prawns, topped with slices of lobster and rabbit with a moat of parsley chlorophyll. A chilled rosé from Aragon made a perfect complement.

Traditional suckling pig (each fine Mallorcan restaurant seems to boast its own superior version) was served just as I like it, with crisp skin and soft middle, accompanied by smoked rhubarb, a dark anise sauce and potato-chive skins, all paired with a Mencia red from Galicia.

Marc Fosh

Reflecting the restaurant’s boldness, Mallorcan soft cheese arrived in the company of loquat fruit (Japanese plum), a common tenant on the island, bay-leaf ice cream and crispy barley. Our colorful dessert of vanilla macaroon and lime-leaf cream reflected more than a hint of tropical indulgence with a mix of refreshing mango, papaya and passion fruit.

With a stylish bar and a central courtyard for fine weather al fresco dining, Marc Fosh serves lunch and dinner daily and has capacity for around 60 people.

First Aston Martin AM37 Owner Takes Delivery in Miami

First Aston Martin AM37 Owner Takes Delivery in Miami

Photos/ Video Credit: Quintessence Yachts

The first AM37 owner has taken delivery of his new Aston Martin powerboat, which will be berthed in Miami. Handcrafted in the UK by Quintessence Yachts, AM37 hull #1 is customized with many additional features including the AM37S propulsion package, which affords a top speed in excess of 50 knots.

AM37

Taking up the option to access the ‘Q by Aston Martin’ personalization service, the owner truly tailored his boat. Aston Martin designers helped translate preferred materials, colors and textures into key elements of the powerboat. The result is a stunning Mako Blue hull and an interior swathed in Baltic Blue and Cream Truffle upholstery with flashes of chrome.

Other features include a convertible sofa, matte Lacewood table and a special version of the Champagne cooler finished in Baltic Blue carbon fibre, which holds two bottles of Champagne and six flutes.

AM37

The vessel includes a full range of options, including air-conditioning, and the powerboat has Axius Joystick Piloting, which provides superb manoeuvrability and precise handling, with an intuitive joystick. Having seen the powerboat in action on her test run, the new owner requested underwater lights in the hull, a bespoke addition that is now available as an option for future clients.

Quintessence Yachts unveiled the much-anticipated prototype of the AM37 at last year’s Monaco Yacht Show. Since then, the  team has gone into overdrive building bespoke AM37s for clients keen to own their very own Aston Martin for the ocean.

The powerboat is available in two versions: a ‘gran turismo’ leisure powerboat with a choice of twin 370-hp Mercury diesels or two 430-hp Mercury petrol engines, and an AM37S version with twin 520-hp petrol engines by Mercury Racing.

Quintessence Yachts also started the production of a spectacular bespoke version for a discerning client who will put his boat through her paces on the Swiss lakes.

AM37

This AM37 matches the client’s new Aston Martin Vantage AMR road car with bulkheads and cabinetry finished in Charcoal Lacquer, and grey Novasuede headlining and window bands. The contemporary configuration has additional engine room sound insulation to comply with the stringent rules which apply to powerboats used on the Swiss lakes. All AM37s benefit from a unique sliding cockpit cover which can be remotely operated with a mobile app.

Navigation, control monitor and entertainment systems are integrated within a 15-inch touchscreen in the dashboard, with advanced functions to control the electric anchor, retractable bimini and retractable swim platform. Each of these day cruisers is manufactured using the latest in composite technologies and features many carbon fiber mouldings, including the deck of the boat.

Quintessence Yachts CEO Mariella Mengozzi concluded, “With so many options available to our clients we are confident that there will never be two identical AM37s. At the heart of our approach is a commitment to listen to customers and understand their needs, supporting their choices with the finest quality artistry. By fusing the maritime and automotive worlds with the universal characteristics of style and elegance, AM37 offers the perfect balance of design and engineering, performance and comfort, luxury and functionality.”
