The main event this week (that I attended at any rate) was the annual Wines of Argentina Tasting, held at Lord’s Cricket ground in London. Train delays, re-routings and so on resulted in a late arrival; just a brief half-hour to taste a few wines before decamping to the Naked Wines Argentinean Zero to Hero tasting I was also to attend.
This was one of the wines I sampled. I adore the label – if you want shelf-presence then this has it in droves. The Budeguer Tucumen Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, Mendoza [Adegga / Snooth] is not yet available in the UK. Its retail price is just a tenner, great value for a nicely peppery, blackcurrant rich wine.
Tucumen Cabernet Sauvignon is the latest in the regular Sunday Wine Snapshots series highlighting photographs with a wine/drink related theme, whether bottles, glasses, vineyards or the back scenes of wineries.
