Five delicious value wines from Argentina!
Tilia Vineyards
 
Tilia
 
Named after the Tilia (Linden) tree commonly found throughout Argentina's wine country, Tilia wines possess true varietal character and embody the rural Mendozean lifestyle. For years vineyard workers have used the flowers of the Tilia to make an herbal tea for enjoyment after a hard day's work. The name Tilia is chosen in honor of this wine country tradition.
 
The Tilia wines are made at Bodegas Esmeralda, a Catena family winery in the Eastern region of Mendoza that is dedicated to making value wines for the Argentine domestic market. Tilia wines offer a unique combination of fruit sourced from the traditional Eastern region and the dynamic Southern region of Mendoza. The Eastern region of Mendoza enjoys warm, sunny days and cool desert nights. The grapes have very ripe, rich fruit flavors and excellent mid-palate depth and concentration. Bright sunshine and low temperatures of the Southern region lend a cool freshness. The fruit from this area shows clean acid balance and soft, supple tannins.
 
Tilia is dedicated to responsible use of the environment. The winemaking and viticultural team actively engage in many practices and programs throughout the community to implement sustainability. Water conservation and reuse, minimal use of pesticides and organic fertilization are several examples of the team's dedication. Furthermore, the entire Tilia viticultural team attends regular sustainability training sessions at the National University of Cuyo and National Agricultural Research Institute. They take this training into the field to share and implement with their grower partners.

Tilia Torrentes 2015 (Argentina)
$8.99 a bottle
The 2015 Torrontés is produced from new plantings in the Tolombón zone of Cafayate in the province of Salta. Quite different from previous vintages when the grapes used were grown in the east of the Mendoza province, these new parral plantings are on granite soils and with a south exposure, which in the southern hemisphere is fresher. It is initially a little tight though slowly develops spicy, citric and white flower notes, subtler, quite harmonious. It feels quite serious, with a faint hint of petrol à la Riesling, and ends dry. They try to do a shorter fermentation to avoid excessive extraction of aromas, because sometimes Torrontés can be too much.
 
Tilia Chardonnay 2014 (Argentina)
$8.99 a bottle.
Wine Advocate: Date tasted: 27th May 2015
Luis Gutiérrez: 87 points
The 2014 Chardonnay feels like a younger version of the 2014, with subtle smoke, some spices and yellow plums, very much a Chardonnay. 20% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation and matured in contact with wood for five months. The medium-bodied palate is fresh, has a nice integration of all the components: This is a fresh wine, the grapes are harvested quite early during the month of February, which in 2014 was quite rainy and cooler than other years. 100,000 bottles were produced.
 
Tilia Bonarda 2014 (Argentina)
$8.99 a bottle
Wine Advocate: Date tasted: 30th May 2015
Luis Gutiérrez: 88 points
The Tilia 2014 Bonarda feels riper and there is little less acidity than in the 2013 vintage. Bonarda cannot really be harvested very early, as it's a late ripening variety, so what they do in warmer vintages is to use a bit more fruit from the Uco Valley (up to 15% here), which is a fresher zone. The quite attractive nose has notes of nuts and nutmeg, some aromatic herbs and even flowers. The palate is juicy and ripe, has a soft texture and a slightly bitter finish. 120,000 bottles produced.
 
Tilia Malbec 2014 (Argentina)
$8.99 a bottle
Wine Advocate: Date tasted: 30th May 2015
Luis Gutiérrez: 90 points
The grapes of the 2014 Malbec were harvested very early and 70% of them fermented using carbonic maceration. The freshness is so impressive that I had to look at the alcohol level, which is half a degree lower than in the fresher 2013 vintage! There are some herbal aromas (think raspberry leaf), bright cherries and flowers, even lilies. The palate is very tasty, with some subtle bitter flavors, fine tannins and very good acidity. This is a triumph over the vintage. Bravo! This should be readily available, as they produced 500,000 bottles of it. And it's one of the best values in Argentina too!
 
Tilia Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (Argentina)
$8.99 a bottle
Wine Advocate: Date tasted: 30th May 2015
Luis Gutiérrez: 87 points
The Tilia 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon feels riper than the 2013. The grapes are sourced from four different vineyards, fermented in stainless steel and cement with some staves. The palate reveals abundant, grainy and slightly earthy tannins and moderate acidity. Some 240,000 bottles are produced.
