Martin Alsina Chosen by Tim Atkin
Prestigious Master of Wine Tim Atkin awarded 91 points to the 2013 vintage of Martin Alsina. "Definitely a wine that’s made to age, this is ambitiously oaked and well structured. Compact, rich and youthful, it’s a tannic, dense, but abundantly fruity style, unfurling flavours of blackberry, liquorice and plum in the glass. ", notes the English wine critic in his publication: Argentina 2016, Special Report. In addition, Martin Alsina took a gold medal this year at the Argentine Wine Awards, the nation's most important wine contest.
