Meet the Winemaker (Episode 32): Gustavo Ursomarso, Terrazas de los Andes winery

Gustavo Ursomarso of Terrazas de los Andes winery in Mendoza, Argentina, who is both a viticulturalist and a winemaker, explains to Debra what he is looking for in the perfect grape and how he judges a grape’s readiness. They chat about the challenges of Terrazas de los Andes, located in Mendoza, which is at the foot of Los Andes mountain range, where they plant different varietals at a range of altitudes on steep hillsides, and also discuss the how tannins in Malbec operate a little differently to other varietals.

    I did not realize that the tannins of a Malbec can be felt with a slight delay. Must try a Malbec to test that out. Thanks for the tip!
