NEW RELEASES: Tajungapul Wines (tr. back slang of juntapulgaÂ or mutt in Argentine Spanish) comes in four shades: white, red, Petit Verdot and five-grape red blend.
While the team has rescued these mongrel wines â€“ that had already been made and were simply not selling â€“ and given them a new lease of life, the plan is to work with Giuseppe ‘El Tano’ Franceschini from the glorious BacĂˇn Vinos and La Giostra del Vino on 2016 vintages.
I loved the white, as it hasÂ enough acidity to hold its own as an aperitif yetÂ sufficient body to work with seafood or a light pasta.
I imagine Vieda, the mysterious five graper, is all about Bordeaux babies â€“ it had plenty of depth and fruit. And the label? It’s given a home to a loveable tajungapul.
