75cl * 13% ABV * Mendoza, Argentina
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. Benjamin means "the youngest son of the family“ and it is traditionally given to last born son of numerous families. Benjamin was released in the Argentine market when Bodega Nieto Senetiner decided to extend the family portfolio, bringing youth and freshness to the winery.
Purple red in colour, bright and intense. Fresh fruity aromas of plum and cherry. Balanced in the mouth with a pleasant finish. A really bight expression of Argentina's most loved grape variety. Try with cheese, pasta and poultry.
