Top 10 wines in the US press15th August, 2013 by Andy Young
Will Lyons picks “an interesting example of the food friendly wine made in Uruguay right now” and Jessica Yadegaran recommends “a truly yummy Pinot Noir”.
In the Wall Street Journal, Lyons featured wines from Uruguay, writing that, “such has been the success of South America’s wine-producing duopoly of Argentina and Chile, which has stormed the international market with interpretations of Malbec and Carménère, that it is easy to overlook the continent’s other wine industries.”
He added: “But outside of Chile and Argentina, it is along the South Atlantic coast where the vine really thrives. Welcome to Uruguay, one of the most intriguing wine-producing countries on the map.”
Lyons went on to write that like Bordeaux, in the wine regions of Bordeaux, “the hot summer weather is tempered by the sea breeze, which slows the ripening process and gives the wines a unique (and welcome) aromatic profile, a pleasing freshness and bright acidity.”
