Discovery was part of his personality, and Saurus wines from Familia Schroeder embody the spontaneous and bold charm of Patagonia, showcasing a lively, youthful, fresh, intense and fruitful style. The goal with the Saurus label is to produce wines typical of their varietal character.
Familia Schroeder is located in San Patricio del Chañar Valley in Argentina’s Patagonia growing region, about 33 miles from Neuquen City. It’s a relatively new area for growing wine grapes, and in recent years top Argentine wineries have developed luxury projects there. The winters are intense and the summers are cool during the night, producing a combination of sugar and acidity that are ideal for crafting world-class wines.
Leonardo Puppato made such a wine — in a rosé-style — out of Pinot Noir grapes. The 2018 vintage is medium-bodied, fresh and fleshy with a long, crisp and delicious finish.
