The wine

This Bordeaux blend red is undeniably one of the finest Argentine reds currently on the market. The grapes come from the Gualtallary plot, in the Uco Valley, and only the best succeed in forming part of Gran Enemigo's production. After de-stalking, they ferment and mature for 18 months in oak casks of different sizes.

If you're lucky enough to get hold of a bottle of Gran Enemigo, you'll immediately understand why Alejandro Vigil's wines are revolutionising the wine scene in Argentina and making an impression on a good number of international wine critics. His creations look for maximum expression of the terroir, allowing the grape to be the real protagonist; therefore when you drink his wines, you drink the product of a vintage, the magic of a little corner of Argentina.

Within that great density, attractively rimmed with a ruby hue, there lies a wine heavyweight. On swirling the glass, the crystal becomes tinted with plentiful tears which cling resolutely. The nose is so rounded that it seems difficult to examine in minute detail, but notes of cocoa, orange peel and red fruit emerge. Menthol notes, spices such as cloves and a refined herbaceous hint of scrub are there too. On the palate it's fresh and captivating, with an extremely distinctive touch and a harmony very infrequently found; an abundance of elements in perfect tune. It takes its leave discreetly, it would seem, yet its aromas persistent long in the memory. Only 4,000 bottles available.

Bodega Aleanna

Argentina is sharply back in focus. It has tremendous potential and in recent years a new batch of young winemakers has been showing how much more there is to discover. The world of wine is evolving and so too in this South American country, where one of the foremost figures answers to the name of Alejandro Vigil, the 'Elvis Presley of wines', 'wine's answer to Messi' or straight to the point and literally, 'the wine beast', although he prefers to describe himself as a simple...
