Greetings From CT Wine Authority!

This week's featured wines are from the booming wine regions of Argentina.  The country is now the world's 5th largest wine producer and the export share is the fastest growing wine market in the world.  Argentinian wines are dominating wine headlines everywhere and for good reason.  The soil and climate are ideal for wine production, not to mention that the U.S. dollar buys 30-40 times more vineyard land in Argentina than in Napa Valley, California.  Wine makers are able to produce high quality wines at very reasonable prices, perfect bargains for today's economically minded consumer.

Los Ailos Syrah/Malbec is a fantastic red blend from the San Juan region of Argentina.  San Juan is the second largest wine producing region in Argentina (behind Mendoza) as of 2003.  The Syrah/Malbec blend is different from the typical single varietal Malbecs for which the country is famous. As a result of the Syrah blend expect more fruitiness, richness, and a softer finish.

Terra Libre Fume Blanc (synonymous with Sauvignon Blanc) is from the famed Mendoza region of Argentina.  This region is situated at the foothills of the Andes and the vineyards are among the coolest in Mendoza.  The grapes for this fantastic white wine are harvested by hand, crushed and only the juice is cool fermented.  Once finished, the wine is cleaned to retain the fruit and acid freshness.

Be sure to join us this Saturday at either of our locations for a chance to partake in our wine tasting of this week's featured wines.  Salud!

Fruity and pungent on the nose.  The onset is crisp and clean followed by blossoming citrus fruit.  The flavors are full and overwhelmingly positive as they unfold finishing with lively acidity and a bright, long, long finish.

Review:
This wine is floral enough that one suspects some Torrontes, Argentina's exotic white variety, is blended in. Whatever it is, it's good by itself and would be a nice partner for lighter seafood dishes or spicy stir-fries. - The Herald Sun more
