Los Poetas Semillon, Argentina 2018


ZOOM 2 A wine of delicate fruity aromas, typical notes of white flowers


A wine of delicate fruity aromas, typical notes of white flowers, some herbal notes and tropical fruits – its
freshness is reminiscent of just-picked grapes. This is followed by a fruity acidity, pure fruit expression without oak, resulting in a pleasurable mouthfeel to be enjoyed in its youth. Elegant and approachable – a good match for simply prepared fish dishes.

“Los Poetas”, or “The Poets”, is the name given to this wine inspired by our favourite poets forming a collage on the label: Walter Whitman, Jorge Luis Borges, Allan Poe and Shakespeare
