Tim Atkin, an acclaimed British wine commentator and Master of Wine, has scored four Don Cristobal wines above 90 Points in his last yearly Argentina Report.

Below, you will find the Don Cristobal wines that were recognized by Tim Atkin as well as their tasting notes:

  • Triana 2012 – 91 Points

 “Triana marries Malbec with 30% Shiraz and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and is the densest, most concentrated wine in the Don Cristóbal range, with 70% new wood, sinewy tannins, plush blueberry and liquorice fruit and a mineral finish”.

  • Punta Paramo Malbec 2018 – 90 Points

“Made from grapes grown on sandy soils in Ugarteche, this well-priced, lightly oaked Malbec is typical of the improving quality here under Diego Medina and Lucia Espejo. Floral, fine and mineral edged, with raspberry and blueberry fruit and a pinch of vanilla spice”.

  • Danzón Red Blend 2018 – 90 Points

“Lightly and sensitively wooded, Danzón is a cuvée of Malbec with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, all sourced from Ugarteche in the southern part of Luján de Cuyo. Fresh, balanced and textured, this is another impressive wine from Don Cristobal”.

  • Cristobal 1492 Viognier 2018 – 90 Points

“Part of an impressive, good value range from this improving bodega, this oral, peachy, cream, unoaked Viognier from Rivadavia in eastern Mendoza has appealing texture, balancing acidity and a dry finish”.
