Mimi in Argentina - Evening - Day 2


We arrived (3hrs later) in San Raphael, having missed the white water rafting experience, after all tasting wine is what we are here for, we had an hour r n r before heading to Bodegas Argenceres. We had a tour of the olive groves (their main business) then a brief foray into the orchards to eat apricots of the tree. We walked to the winery and saw the beautiful set up for our dinner under the stars. The tasting started at 8.30pm you just knew dinner wouldn't be till 11- I'm starving! The wines were 'jammier' than before, more balanced tanins on the barrel oaked wines, the staved wines needed a little longer for the flavours to balance out. Dinner was a delicious barbecue served at table, all white decoration, the Chardonnays lack of oak but fullness of flavours made for a great food wine.

Home by 2am to be out at 9am for. 3 hour journey back to Mendoza.
