2017 Argentina vintage small but fantastic

23 - may - 17

The Argentinean winemakers are a happy lot. After two disappointing vintages owning to unfavourable weather conditions, the 2017 vintage is being seen as one the best. While the volume of the wine produced is low, the quality is very high, reports

“After 2014 and 2015 were challenged by rain close to the harvest, and 2016 in spring and early summer, we had a return to almost normal Mendoza weather. The only problem was a series of near-frost events during spring. This resulted in a poor fruit set for Malbec, with yields down between 40% and 60%” said, Santiago Achaval, a local winemaker.

The harvest was earlier than usual and that proved to be a blessing. A bout of heavy rainfall took place right after the harvest was done in mid-April.

The overall production is said to be almost 40-70% lower than normal. “2017 will be remembered for its excellent quality and low volume. Low yields and excellent ripeness led to an impressive concentration of tannins and very intense colour,” said winemaker Marcos Fernández.
