    Rating: 90 (10/31/2019)

    he 2019 Via Revolucionaria Criolla Grande was first produced in 2016 (with a very small volume), but I had never tasted it before. It comes from vines planted in the 1940s with a blend of Criolla grapes (including some Cereza and even Criolla Chica) in Campo Vidal in Tupungato. It's a bright and light cherry color, almost like a dark rosé, and has a juicy, pleasant and appealing personality, straightforward and easy to enjoy. The palate is light and refreshing, with clean flavors, and it has a finish lifted up by good acidity. This should go down well with tapas...
