2015 Ambrosía, Viña Unica Cabernet Sauvignon, Gualtallary, Uco Valley, Argentina

Description

Produced in Gualtallary, the sub-zone considered to be the “grand cru” of Mendoza, the 2015 Viña Unica Cabernet Sauvignon from Ambrosia is definitely a wine to savour. Its concentration and intensity is immediately evident on the nose. On the palate this wine oozes rich blackcurrant and plum fruit which is perfectly balanced by its fine tannins and fresh acidity. There is also a refreshing mineral core running through the wine, persisting long after your first sip. It is a stunning wine.

About this WINE

Ambrosia

Ambrosia

In 2002 a group of friends decided that the price of vineyard land in Argentina would never be lower, following the currency crash. The land which they bought was located in the Gualtallary zone of the Uco valley circa 75 Km south of the city of Mendoza. It is now considered the finest area for premium wine in the Mendoza Province. Having  enlisted the help of a local wine maker to process their fruit, the only way they could pay him was in bottles of the resulting wine.

One such bottle came to the attention of Robert Parker who awarded 95 points - remarkable for a first vintage. The wines are now marketed under the Ambrosia label, and Berry Bros & Rudd are delighted to offer them on an exclusive basis in the UK. As ever, it is quality of the fruit that defines the concentration and finish on these wines.

Cab.Sauvignon

Cab.Sauvignon

The most famous red wine grape in the world and one of the most widely planted.

It is adaptable to a wide range of soils, although it performs particularly well on well-drained, low-fertile soils. It has small, dusty, black-blue berries with thick skins that produce deeply coloured, full-bodied wines with notable tannins. Its spiritual home is the Médoc and Graves regions of Bordeaux where it thrives on the well-drained gravel-rich soils producing tannic wines with piercing blackcurrant fruits that develop complex cedarwood and cigar box nuances when fully mature.

The grape is widely planted in California where Cabernet Sauvignon based wines are distinguished by their rich mixture of cassis, mint, eucalyptus and vanilla oak. It is planted across Australia and with particular success in Coonawarra where it is suited to the famed Terra Rossa soil. In Italy barrique aged Cabernet Sauvignon is a key component in Super Tuscans such as Tignanello and Sassicaia, either on its own or as part of a blend with Sangiovese.
