The New World has long been at the forefront of the production of quality wines. Professionals in the sector are well aware of this but, perhaps, still, this is not the case for consumers, especially Europeans.

The four proposals tasted are recommended for their high quality and good value for money.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 - Crane Lake

Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, by the US winery Crane Lake is one of the flagships of the company. A wine suggested for its rich and intense taste for “The pleasant and well-defined olfactory range in its scents.” For its “floral notes reminiscent of a potpourri of red flowers, followed by hints of morello cherry and fruit jam. Balsamic notes and notes reminiscent of the undergrowth are highlighted.” For the full review click here.

Pinot Gris 2021, by the New Zealand winery Pounamu is the successful bet of two wine lovers, which began in 2002 in Marlborough, the capital of New Zealand wine par excellence.
The company stands on what was once a sheep farm and is now home to 41 hectares of 100% sustainable vineyards.
The wine is recommended for “Its fairly complex aroma that offers hints of fresh white flowers such as jasmine and acacia, accompanied by fruity aromas reminiscent of peach, apricot and quince.” For the full review click here.

Sauvignon Blanc Sémillon 2019, by the Australian company Cape Mentelle, best expresses the quintessential wine territory of Australia, Margaret River. Cape Mentelle is one of Margaret River’s “five founding wineries”.
The wine tasted is suggested for “The complex, intense and fine quality range of aromas, the notes of fresh white flowers that are accompanied by fruity notes typical of the two vines from peach to tropical fruit.” For the full review click here.

Tannat 2021, by the Uruguayan winery, Juan Carrau is a sample that we appreciated for the “Fairly wide range of perfumes and its very light toasted note. Fresh on the palate, with an outlined and velvety tannin.”
Bodegas Carrau has a history spanning centuries, which began in Spain, in Catalonia, in 1752 and continued in Uruguay where the Carrau company is an institution. For the full review click here.
