First, SOHO will pour a Mapuche Sauvignon Blanc 2018 from Central Valley, Chile.  The winemaker offers,

“Pablo Morandé is one of the fathers of wine-making in Chile. His influence has transformed the plantings in the Maipo Valley to be revered and respected around the world. Pablo is rooted in the history of Chilean wine production: being one of the leaders of the team making wines at Concha y Toro, a very well-known Chilean vineyard, and responsible for the release of the critically acclaimed Concha y Toro Melchor (a wine may credit as the benchmark release for Chilean wines around the world).

Next, SOHO will pour a Felino Malbec 2014 from Mendoza, Argentina. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Violet red with black tones. An attractive nose with aromas of fresh black fruits and prunes. The palate displays good concentration and balance, with sweet yet supple tannins.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Cuvelier Los Andes Blend Coleccion Valle de Uco 2013 from Valle de Uco, Mendoza, Argentina. Notes on the wine,

“The nose is a powerful combination of dark plums, espresso coffee, Belgian chocolate and shy hints of red cherries with a full-bodied palate and abundant, fine-grained tannins, moderate acidity and good length, no doubt lifted by the alcohol. This is a big, ripe blend, slightly international, in need of some bottle aging.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
