After-class cultural activities at La Montaña:
Argentina Wine tasting: Today Special: MALBEC.
Periodically, as part of our After-class cultural activities at La Montaña, Rafael brings important information and good wines to taste.
Last Friday, we enjoyed MALBEC, while we learned about Argentine Winery and this is what we found out:
Argentine Strongest wine is Cabernet Sauvignon and the lightest: Pinot Noir
The area where the grape is grown will make the difference: Salta: stronger wines, Mendoza: medium wines, Patagonia: lighter wines
The specialty in Patagonia are: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot, Noir Merlot
Labels: According to Argentine regulations, what you read in the front label must agree 100% with the wine facts, while what is written in the back label might not be 100% objective information.
"Reserva" means the wine has passed some time in oak tanks
"Roble" means some chipped oak from used tanks has been added to the wine.
Stick around us! You will be happily surprised with our cultural activities while learning about our culture and practice Spanish!
