Recuerdo Wines offers enthusiasts the opportunity to experience premium wines that capture the best of Argentina’s unique terroir, specifically within the high-altitude Uco Valley. Recuerdo mean “memory” or “memento” in Spanish. As such, the Recuerdo winemaking team of Santiago Achával and Pablo Martorell passionately believe that each bottle of Recuerdo should not only represent Argentina’s native terroir but also serve as a memory of each and every harvest.
The fruit for this bold, full bodied wine is hand-sorted for its superiority and aged in select French oak barrels for 22 months. Optimum after decanting, the wine opens with concentrated aromatics of dark plum and blackberry. The balanced flavor profile possesses plenty of dark fruit, mocha and cracked black pepper integrated with spicy, lush tannins and vanilla-oak nuances. The wine has incredible length that leads to an elegant, satiny finish.
