Chardonnay Mantra Rebel 2020 - Secreto Patagonico (Argentina)
The extreme climate forces the vines to grow strong and robust. This wine is bottled in winter to accentuate its aromas.
San Patricio del Chañar, the Patagonian town in whose surroundings Secreto Patagónico is located, is the heart of one of the most interesting areas of Argentine wine, in the upper Neuquén valley. Here the best expressions are pinot noir, a vine of which the company created in 2003 by Carlos and Cristina Groppo Parisi is a faithful interpreter. Today, the new generation is also leading it, represented by their sons Tomás and Sofía, for a reality with a familiar flavor that extends over more than 60 hectares. The uniqueness of the terroir stands out and deeply characterizes the wines: the continuous and frequent winds, the contained rains and humidity, the desert climate, the wide temperature range and the sandy and gravelly soils return unique products, which bear the most authentic Patagonian.
