Last night’s pick from the La Toscana cellar, to pair with a seven hour slow roasted lamb shoulder, was the 2011 Miras Cabernet Franc (Magnificent!!!!), I cannot wait to meet Marcelo Miras tomorrow at Bodega Fin del Mundo.
Today I departed Buenos Aires and arrived in the Patagonia Wine Region of Neuquen. The fast paced big city of Buenos Aires was soon dismissed as I relaxed on a beautiful tranquil raft trip down the Limay River…
I am here in the land of Patagonia Lamb, with Chef Emanuel Leiva… with his leg of the lamb (slowly cooked for nine hours in a wood oven) over creamy lentils with ginger and lemon zest. Paired with Familia Schroeder’s Saurus Select Pinot Noir.
Chef Fernando Rivarola is outrageous in his culinary creations… First is Raw Llama, second is Rabbit Hearts, third is everything in a magnificent complexity of flavors to rock your world… all with fascinating social statements.
