A wine that encapsulates the essence of Patagonia’s unique terroir and winemaking expertise. Let’s take a closer look at this remarkable wine and unravel its story against the backdrop of Patagonian viticulture.
A Piece of History in Every Sip: Bodega Noemia Noemia 2019
Bodega Noemia is no ordinary winery. Nestled within the breathtaking landscapes of Patagonia, this winery boasts a vineyard that tells a tale of time and tradition. The vineyard spans a mere 1.5 hectares, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in history.
The vines that bear the grapes for the Noemia 2019 were planted way back in 1932, in a pre-phylloxera period. These vines, of pie franco and massale selection, carry a genetic legacy that sets them apart from modern cloned vines.
Diverse Plots, Distinct Wines
The vineyard is divided into four distinct plots, each managed independently to ensure meticulous care. This specialized approach allows the vines to flourish and produce grapes of exceptional quality. The dedication to quality extends to the winemaking process as well. After the careful cultivation of the vineyard, each plot’s grapes are fermented separately in custom-designed open French oak fermenters by Surtep Tonnellier. This attention to detail ensures that the unique characteristics of each plot are preserved, resulting in a wine that is a true testament to the terroir.
