About
It very much embodies the kind of fresh, welcoming red that many Argentinian wineries are aiming to produce these days.

About The Wine

Bodega Noemía is a collaboration between Danish winemaker Hans Vinding-Diers and Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano, the heiress to the Cinzano empire.

Regularly cited as one of the top wineries in this part of the world, this Bodega is at the forefront of quality for the region.

Vibrant red and black fruits fill the nose and mouth, lots of concentration here. But this is a purer, less butch Malbec than other examples.

Much of the fruit for this lovely, layered wine is sourced from long leases from local growers, part of a plan to save these old vineyards from outside development.

About Bodega Noemia

Picture an Italian wine heiress and a renowned Danish oenologist restoring an old, unkempt Malbec vineyard in remote Patagonia, and then establishing a winery that continues to make some of Argentina's best wines.

That's the story of Bodega Noemia, on the banks of the Rio Negre in Patagonia in the central Argentinian high country. The heiress is Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano, the oenologist Hans Vinding-Dier, though Vinding-Dier is now in sole control.

Malbec predominates of course, with vineyards of varying age, but there are smatterings of other red varieties such as Cabernet, Merlot and Pinot, and some Semillon planted. The Malbecs are smooth, joyous, cellarworthy wines, perhaps more refined than their Mendoza-based cousins to the north.

Additional Info

From The Producer

All of the grapes come from producers in the Mainqué area with whom we have long-term lease contracts and whose vineyards are managed by our agricultural team throughout the year. The average age of these ancient clones in leasing is 40 years. The integration of these local producers allows us to contribute to the micro-economy of our community so as to help protect the heritage of these ancient vineyards, which permanently run the risk of being ripped off to use the land for other activities.

Decanter Magazine

"An easygoing Malbec (which also contains 9% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc) from Mainqué in Río Negro, Patagonia. It very much embodies the kind of fresh, welcoming red that many Argentinian wineries are aiming to produce these days. Bright violet in the glass, the aromatic profile features fresh plum and cherry, with hints of herb and balsamic notes. Light and voluminous with lovely freshness and gentle tannins, it will go well chicken, fowl and pork." - Alejandrio Iglesias (Decanter Magazine)

"Savory spices, dried herbs and stems on the nose with earthy blackberries and cranberries. Medium-to full-bodied with powdery tannins and savory, spicy berry fruit and some herbal accents. Drink or hold." - James Suckling

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
