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 Winemakers White Blend 2017
A big fruit explosion of a wine, a bit like a vinous version of Um Bongo in many ways (though possibly less prevalent in the Congo). Bursting with tropical flavours but with some classy chalky minerality and jasmine notes for good measure, this is a wine that has no shortage of mass appeal.
First vintage of this blend from Santiago Mayorga. 30% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Chardonnay, 20% Semillon and 20% Viognier all from high altitude Uco Valley vineyards. After fermentation in stainlesssteel tank, the wine was left of fine lees for 5 months before bottling.
