Cara Sur (Sebastian Zuccardi and Francisco Bugallo) 2018 San Juan Moscatel Blanco

This is an bright, fantastic Moscatel Blanco made in an invigorating style using skin contact. Thought of as "old-fashioned" in Argentina, this wine was made with a week of skin maceration. When this is combined with the high altitude of the vineyards (1500m) and the age of the vines (80+ years), this is a powerful, dry, and intense wine. While retaining the classic aromatic character of Muscat on the nose, the palate displays loads of acidity and a bright lemony profile that is set in contradistinction to its grippy tannins. A perfect pairing for lemon-roasted chicken or fillets of large pelagic fish. This wine would be perfect for assorted tapas as well. Drink now, but could age mightily. I'm excited to see how this will develop in bottle. Andrew Farquhar

Cuma, Michel Torino 2018 Cafayete Valley Malbec (Organic)

A tried-and-true Malbec from northern Argentina. Not as extracted and full bodied as many other options, so think Malbec flavors, but lighter bodied and more easy drinking. No new oak, just pure fruit, a bit of grip and good freshness. It pretty much goes with anything!

Ver Sacrum 2016 Los Chacayes Valle De Uco Garnacha Rose

Eduardo Soler started Ver Sacrum after a visit to the Gredos mountains of Spain, where he fell in love with mountainous styles of Grenache. He decided to make high-altitude, low-alcohol, lighter wines - not what consumers think of when they think of Argentina. This is a pretty, mineral-driven Grenache, still with the classic dense strawberry compote fruit character of the variety, but including a nice minerality and a finish redolent of a fistful of fresh Provençal herbs. This wine has fantastic concentration for being so light, and will pair with all manner of partygoing. Andrew Farquhar
