WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "The white 2020 Blanco de la Casa is a blend of 40% Sauvignon Blanc from Gualtallary, 40% Sémillon from La Consulta and 20% Chardonnay from La Carrera. It fermented and matured in concrete eggs for eight months. It's a light and approachable white with 12.5% alcohol and a lively palate with all the varieties perfectly integrated. It's sharp, dry and tasty, more about the mouthfeel and texture than the aromas."
Matias Riccitelli has set his mark early, pushing the boundaries for Argentine winemaking from the inception (2009) and gaining heaps of recognition, including winemaker of the year in Decanter Magazine only a few vintages ago. His winery is perched atop Las Compuertas, at around 3600 feet in elevation and the highest point of Lujan de Cuyo in Mendoza. He has received numerous accolades for winemaking and his Blanco de la Casa white blend epitomizes his forward-thinking style... a blend of old-vine Sauvignon Blanc (40%), Semillon (40%), and the balance in Chardonnay, that has been cofermented in concrete eggs for eight months with native yeasts. The result is a stunning, textural wine that boasts orchard fruits, lemon peel and is underpinned by salty minerality on a long-lasting and delicious finish.
