Finca La Celia – Fine Argentine Wine

16-Sep-2011
As South America makes its way in the 21st century, Argentina is rapidly gaining ground on the leader Chile in terms of quality. The Mendoza growing region is where the best wines come from, with Malbec recognised as the best suited varietal as far as international recognition is concerned. There is growing interest in the unique Torrontes variety, very aromatic and related to Muscat. The Finca La Celia estate was established in 1890 and is named after founder Eugenio Bustos' daughter who ran it successfully for nearly 50 years. It is now a modern player, acquired in 2000 by Chilean industry giant San Pedro who has invested heavily in it. With 600 ha of vineyards, the Uco Valley Malbec is the star performer. The winemaking is headed by Cristian Garcia and Manuel Bianchi the vineyard manager. www.fincalacelia.com.ar  Contact the N.Z. distributors at www.south2south.com
