On this opportunity, Stephen Tanzer got to taste one of our newest addition which will be soon available on the market. It is the innovative Susana Balbo Signature White Blend 2015 which received 92 points and Stephen labeled as: “A truly exciting new white blend from Argentina.”
The rest of our Susana Balbo Signature varietals received great scores as well: 92 points for the Barrel Fermented Torrontés 2015, 90 points for the new Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2015, 92 points for the Brioso, 91 points for the Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 and 90 points for the Malbec 2014.
The fresh and fruit forward style of CRIOS captivated the American critic. Both CRIOS Torrontés 2015 and CRIOS Malbec 2015 obtained 89 points.
In “Argentina: The Cool Years”, Tanzer highlights the change in Argentinean winemaking over the last 10 years towards a new style of wines: “grape-growers and winemakers have sought out cooler, mostly higher-altitude sites and soils more conducive to making fresher, more complex, better-balanced wines”.
