San Juan is an important Argentinian wine-producing area in the north-western corner of Argentina. The province is almost entirely contained within the mountainous foothills of the Andes and sits next to Mendoza. The vineyards are located at a relatively high average altitude, between 2,000ft and 4,000ft above sea level. The region is predominantly semi-desert with irrigation facilitated by the rivers that cross the region. Due to the very dry continental climate, vineyards are dependent on the meltwater flowing down from the Andes Mountain range to the west.
Many people automatically think “sweet” when they think of Muscato, but Nuevo Cipres is delightfully crisp and light with perky floral notes and a palate that is balanced between florals, fruits and minerals with a medium acitiy. A perfect wine to pair with shellfish or for enjoying by itself on your patio.
