Hubert Weber, a Swiss oenologist who settled in Argentina about 15 years ago. Besides his job as a counselor for Bodegas Weinert, runs his own domain in Luján de Cuyo. During our site visit we tasted two wines from this globetrotter and vineyard. What can be expected when the Swiss precision and exuberant Latin Americans meet, read shortly

 

Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 Hubert Weber
The aroma is bursting with red fruit. The story begins with an abundance of cherries and currants, fine shades of nutmeg and cardamom, and toast. The silky tannins surrounding the fruit with a taste like jam of four fruits, figs and added a touch of red pepper. The taste is very accessible and soaked people talking, even spicy jokes diving. The vines grow on pergolas and the grapes soak for 8 days. The wine is raised for the most part in cement tanks.

 

Seleccion privada cuvée Pauillac 2007 Hubert Weber
Currant, raspberry and cassis on a delicate grilled toast tumbling from the glass. In the mouth it tastes exquisite biscuits, fresh figs that nestle among the berries, crunchy. Supportive tannins are of good quality and moderate the exuberant character through the gossamer, silky texture, like a delicate lace creates a subtle relief. The wine is a blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot and 10% malbec. The grapes grow on pergolas in a sandy soil mixed with pebbles while malbec grown in loss and guided on wires. The wine is raised in oak barrels, then another 3 years in cement tanks.
