Verdes Cobardes 2014

Verdes Cobardes 2014

 

We talk a lot about the rule-breaking, maverick approach to making wine that is embodied in Matias Michelini. That's not to say this fantastic winemaker doesn't also make wines that bring an instant smile to the taster with their obvious crowd-pleaser credentials; wines with a lovely immediacy and highly approachable character. This gorgeous blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Viognier and Chardonnay from Tupungato is one such wine. Fragrant, fresh and abundantly fruity from start to finish; we defy any true wine lover not to want a second bottle.

And what about the name? Verdes Cobardes - Green Cowards! This is a moniker applied to Matias by some of his neighbours, who say early picking is cowardly, not waiting for so-called 'optimum ripeness'. We suspect they are just jealous. As Matias himself says: "Cobardes are those of us who choose to pick the grapes with less maturity in the search for a wine with expression, tension, nerves and depth."

 

 

Amen!
