Earlier this year at the end of March, Cara and I had the opportunity to spend a few days visiting the wine region of Mendoza. From our base in the city of Mendoza we spent our days touring a number of the vineyards and wineries that have helped to put this spectacular wine region on the map.

For most folks, the frame of reference when it comes to Argentina is Malbec and for the more adventurous Torrontes. Well I can tell you that we returned home with a much greater appreciation of the full range and remarkable potential of winemaking in this region.

One of the revelations from our time in Argentina came in the form of a bottle with a champagne cork. Early on during our time here, we attended a reception hosted by the Zuccardi family at their Bodega Santa Julia. While passed oer d'oeuvres made their way around the vine covered patio adjacent to the tasting room, bottles of sparkling wine were popped and eye brows began to rise.

The wine that was being poured around for all the invited guests that evening was Santa Julia Organic Blanc de Blancs. As each of us looked to refill our glasses, all agreed that this wine was absolutely delicious and a great refresher on a hot evening.. not just in Argentina but back at home as well. After determining that the price that this would sell for in in the US would make it one of the great sparkling wine values going and that the wine was not being distributed on the East Coast, we went to work toward bringing this wine to Boston. Raising a glass in toast today, I introduce you to Santa Julia Organic Blanc de Blancs. 

Sourced entirely from organic Chardonnay grapes grown in the Maipu Valley on the Santa Julia estate, this wine possesses all of the best qualities of a fine Italian Prosecco if it were crossed with a top notch Spanish Cava. Whole bunches of Chardonnay are harvested and lightly pressed. After primary fermentation, a long cool charmat method fermentation takes place. The wine then aged on it's lees for an additional 8 months prior to bottling. The finished wine is bottles under cork and cage and and aged in bottle once again prior to release. 

This wine is very popular back in Argentina and very little of it makes it to the export markets. The wine is crafted in an "Extra Dry" style with 11.5% ABV and a residual sugar level that sits somewhere around the 10 g/l level. In the glass the wine is a brilliant yellow hue with persistent bubbles rolling up from the bottom of the glass. The aromatics are forward with notes of fresh, ripe, white pit fruits- peach, apricot wafting up from the glass. On the palate the refreshing crisp acidity and fine bubbles are quickly followed by flavors of citrus & ripe peach which is enhanced by notes of almond/marzapan which give the wine a delightful layered complexity rarely found in bubbles at this price point. This is a sparkling wine that you will enjoy sharing with friends and family as the wine is remarkably versatile, of excellent quality, and eye brow raising value.

The Bodega Santa Julia Organic Blanc de Blanc in it's current incarnation is a $16 bottle.
