Nieto Senetiner has grown to become one of the leading stars of Mendoza. Although the vineyards and winery were founded by Italian immigrants and date back to 1888, they were acquired by the Nieto and Senetiner families in 1969.Nieto has some 400 hectares of vineyards in virtually all of the best sub-districts of Mendoza from which it produces classic and modern wines characterised by the uniquely appealing balance of power and finesse that defines the best wines of the region. The top wines come from very old vineyards in the famed sub-district of Agrelo, and are fully deserving of their status.Since joining the estate, winemaker Santiago Mayorga has taken the wines to another level and was named 'Young Winemaker of the Year 2017' by Tim Atkin.
Nieto Senetiner Bonarda 2017
Sourced from nieto’s 43 year old vineyards in Lujan de Cuyo. Nieto were the first people in the area to use the bonarda grape variety in a table wine. Bold and black-as-yer-hat Bonarda from the first South American’s to vinify the varietal. It’s well structured with great concentration of blackberry fruit, fig compote and plums. The spicy vanilla and mocha finish gives this deeply coloured Bonarda great balance. Aged in French oak for 10 months. A lovely nose of blackberry leading to a well structured palate, with great concentration of blackberry fruit, hints of of sour cherry and plums, as well as notes of liquorice and tar
