“Chimichurri”

After a perfect day of fishing with friends, there’s nothing better than an exquisite meal at the field.

Our chef is the best in preparing our famous “chimichurri”.

Yummy!

Yummy!

It’s a condiment originally from Argentina. It’s mainly used in towns and rural areas since it enhances the flavor of bushmeat  like doves, pigeons, deer, ducks, etc.

Chimichurri is made from finely chopped parsley (an alternative version uses coriander), minced garlic, olive oil, paprika, salt and white or red wine vinegar.

Argentinian Barbecue

With no exception , all our guests want to try this sauce. They try it with the barbecue or with delicious homemade bread that we have at the table at lunch. 90% of our clients eat the meat with a lot of “chimichurri” and half of them ask for the recipe!

Whoever wants to take home some chimichurri, we give you one that is dissected as a gift. You can prepare it at home with oil, water and salt.

Come to check our famous chimichurri and enjoy the best flyfishing options!

Don David Reserve Malbec

dondavidmalbec1

Cold mornings and nights, and long hot days result in wines that are highly concentrated in color, aromas and flavors with a unique fruity character.

The winemaker goal is to produce elegant and complex wines in the range. 70% of the wines is aged in small barrels of both American and French oak for 12 months. 100% of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation spontaneously.

Talking about this specific wine:

-Colour: vivacious red with violet sparkles. A noble tear indicates its firm structure.

-Aroma: plum jam and raisin combined with pipe tobacco, vanilla and toasted notes dominate the aromas.

-Taste: very well balanced with sweet and soft tannins. Fruity full of plumbs and chocolate notes. Pleasant finish.

So, what do you think about this wine? Have you ever tried it? I must say that I did and is really good. Specially combined with a good barbecue!

The Best Red Wine in the World is Argentine!

Familia Binachi Malbec Reserve

San Rafael Vineyard, Mendoza.

San Rafael Vineyard, Mendoza.

For the first time in the viticulture history of our country, an Argentine wine received the maximum award for “Best Red Wine in the World” in the prestigious competition “Vinalies Internationales”

.bianchi2

Famiglia Bianchi Reserve Malbec 2012 was elbaorated by Casa Bianchi cellar in San Rafeal, Mendoza. The luscious, intense fruit aromas that hint of ripe plumbs, cherries and berries give an initial indication of why this variety is so highly recommended. The flavors are similar to the aromas with a mouth feel of a massive presence but at the same time soft and silky

You can enjoy this wine and many others with us. Imagine yourself sitting near a fireplace with a glass of Malbec wine after an intensive full fishing day…Priceless!  We have a selected option of malbec and cabernet sauvignon, which are perfect to enjoy with red meat and with our famous barbecues.

Michel Rolland, 66 years old.

Michel Rolland is an influential Bordeaux-based oenologist, with hundreds of clients across 13 countries and influencing wine style around the world. He works with serious producers in just about every major wine-making region on the globe, including Argentina.

In 1988, Dany and Michel Rolland were asked to be consultants to one of the oldest families in the valley of Calchaqui. There they discovered Cafayate, a true paradise for viticulture in the north-west of Argentina and they fell in love with the country, its culture, traditions and its people.

Calchaqui Valley.

These French wine consultants were convinced that unique, outstanding wines could be produced in this mountain region of the Andes foothills. Dany and Michel decided to put all their passion and savoir-faire to work with their Argentinean friends to produce the wine called Yacochuya.
michelrolland3

Yacochuya is a 100% Malbec wine that is aged 18 to 24 months in new French oak barrels.

-Color: deep garnet-red

-Nose: meaty, toasted oak, leather with hints of dried currant

-Palate: well crafted, great balance in the aromatic array which unwinds harmoniously right up to the finish, then the tannis appear before giving way to liquorice aromas that linger on a refreshing finish.

Have you try this wine before? I suggest you to pair Yacochuya with roasted lamb, or pasta with mushroom sausage.

Clos de los Siete – Michel Rolland

closdelossiete1

“Clos de los Siete” is a wine project conceived in 1998 by renown French winemakers Michel Rolland and Jean-Michel Arcaute. The idea was to produce a wine in the then largely untapped landscape of Tunuyan valley, south of Mendoza, Argentina. The name derives from the original seven wine industry investors who were first attached to the project. Their mission was to make wines in Argentina that rival some of the best in the world, without the use of fertilizers, pesticides and with traditional, time-tested methods. Since then, a collective of wine-making estates bearing the “Clos de los Siete” name have emerged and gained prominence.

closdelossiete2

Opaque purple-colored, the wine coats the glass while offering up a superb bouquet of toasty oak, violets, mineral, black currant, blueberry, and black cherry. This is followed by a layered wine with gobs of ripe fruit, a plush texture, outstanding balance.

closdelossiete3

As to foodpairing,we recommend to try this exquisite wine with roasted beef, lamb or barbecue.  Another possibility is spicy food and hard cheese.

Have you try this wine before? I did, and I must say it is perfect for a typical Argentine barbecue or “asado”. This is one of the most requested wines at our lodges!

You should be the next one!
