Bodegas El Porvenir - PORVENIR

This is the flagship wine from El Porvenir, a blend of Cabernet, Malbec, Syrah and Tannat. Only 8500 bottles produced. I'm a huge fan of El Porvenir - they're Laborum wines are stunning, and this is even better. It's a big, powerful wine but also structured and refined. El Porvenir is the highest quality winery in the world, and that altitude lends certain characteristics to the wines which make them some of the very best in Argentina. The altitude produces wines with sweet tannins and good body with plenty of acidity which is essential for making top quality balanced wines. The soil also contains greater mineral and salt content which influences the wine's flavour. It's a superb wine, with big fruit flavours, sweet tannins, backbone and structure. It's full in the mouth and wonderfully smooth with great overall balance. Fantastic wine!

Porvenir from El Porvenir de Los Andes is the flagship wine of this boutique winery. It's stunningly good!

It's another great wine for laying down, a classic, as it will keep for years and years.

El Porvenir de Los Andes is a superb family owned winery in the Cafayate Valley in Salta in the far north of Argentina. It was originally founded in 1890 by a family of Italian immigrants. Today it is a top quality boutique winery, the highest altitude quality winery in the world, producing some beautiful premium wines.

In my opinion this Porvenir, their top wine, is amongst the best red wines on our site, and is one of the best reds to come out of Argentina. We like Lucia very much, and we like the ethos of El Porvenir so we could be forgiven for being a little biased, but these wines really do speak for themselves. We've always been huge fans of their Laborum range, and this Porvenir is up another level again.
