Bodega Viña Alicia
Viña Alicia" is a small jewel of a winery in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza (Lunlunta sector). It is “small” in terms of land extension and total production, but a real gem and “grand” for its longstanding tradition of winemaking, the passion for its terroir, and the excellence of its wines created over several generations. In the year 1998, after almost 25 years of experimenting, Alicia Mateu de Arizu – wife of renown winemaker Alberto Arizu (owner of the Luigi Bosca winery) – together with her youngest son Rodrigo Arizu starts selling the wines, which should from now on wear her name - „Viña Alicia“: two exclusive blends and four exclusive varietal wines, that surprise wine lovers with something special. With “chateau-like” characteristics, the Viña Alicia winery is surrounded by a ten-hectare vineyard, which produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, including some impossible-to-find “rarities” in Argentina, such as Grenache Noir and Carignan, and two hectares of Petit Verdot (a clonal development of 15 years in the making). Viña Alicia owns another 15-hectare, ninety year-old, vineyard in Las Compuertas, Luján de Cuyo, where it produces exclusively Malbec, a vineyard that Alicia inherited from her father, Don Miguel Mateu. The production is very limited, or better to say controlled, to ensure the highest quality of the wines. Only between 800 and 1000 bottles of the top wines Nebbiolo, Cuarzo and Brote Negro (“Black shoot” - a natural Malbec rarity, detected in a very old Malbec vineyard) are produces each year. Very few bottles remain in Argentina, the rest goes to 8 worldwide distributors, where it is sold though closed circles and subscription tasting.

You will find very few Chardonnay in this intensity and purity on the market, i.e. without the influence of oak ageing which is typical and expected from most clients in this price category. The blending with 15% Semillón with its pleasant juiciness rounds this wine up so well that you hardly find any flaw.

Intense dark red colour. Elegant raspberry aromas and the typical complexity of this noble grape. Fresh, very harmonious, with nice fruit, elegant acid and ripe tannins – pleasant to drink. Outstanding depth on the palate, round and fleshy with soft but powerful tannins.

A relatively new concept for Viňa Alicia, this frankly stunning blend of 50% Riesling, 40% Albarino, and 10% Savagnin (a grape native to the Jurancon region in France), offers something exotic and slightly bewildering let alone different. It’s beautiful.

Mild, perfumed, rounded and warm. There is a depth to it, with gentle, abundant tannins. It takes two hours to elicit its smoky and mineral aroma with cocoa, mulberry, spice and vanilla notes. The ripeness of the grape has left its heritage of complexity.
