An irresistible blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec.
Intense ruby colour. Complex and elegant nose, with red berries and notes of vanilla and tobacco. In the mouth the wine is medium-full bodied with ripe dark fruit flavours and a hint of oaky spice.
On 28th May 1865 the clipper ship 'Mimosa' set sail from Liverpool carrying 153 Welsh emigrants bound for Patagonia.
The passengers paid £12 per adult and £6 per child for the journey. Their aim was to establish a Welsh colony in the Chubut River valley in a bid to preserve the Welsh language and culture. They landed on July 28 and were met by Edwyn Cynrig Roberts and Lewis Jones who had arrived in Patagonia in June to prepare for the main cohort of settlers. They named their landing site Porth Madryn and on September 15th 1865 the first town in the colony was named Rawson, which was followed by settlements at Gaiman and Trelew.
In 1875 the Argentine government granted the Welsh settlers ownership of the land, encouraging hundreds of others from Wales to join the colony.
Today, more than 50,000 Patagonians are of Welsh descent with almost 5,000 being Welsh speakers. The Welsh-Argentine colony, which became known as Y Wladfa, remains centered around Gaiman, Trelew and Trevelin.
Bodega Patritti was born in 2003 when the first vines were planted in San Patricio del Chañar, province of Neuquén. We devote ourselves to the production of high-quality wines of outstanding personality. To achieve this goal, we count on the unique characteristics of the Patagonian soil.
The outburst of Patagonia wine region in recent years is due to its excellent results in production, and the use of superb raw materials together with the most advanced technology.
