2016 VIN­TAGE IN MEN­DOZA

Epicure - - CELLAR CHOICE -

El Niño weather con­di­tions led to an atyp­i­cal vin­tage with 400% more rain­fall in April dur­ing har­vest.

Rain and hail led to yields that were down by as much as 27-50% com­pared to 2015.

Sau­vi­gnon Blancs are more citrus for­ward, Chardon­nays leaner and Mal­becs gen­er­ally fresher, clean and at­trac­tive.
