Product Description

92JS, 90W&S  - “Delicious in its simplicity, this is a vin de soif. Filled with raspberry and cherry flavors, with an inner energy sparked by juicy and bright acidity, this wine’s texture provides firm and well-defined tannins that make it an ideal partner for tuna tartare." - Wine Enthusiast, 90 points! Best Buy!

“A rich and ripe wine with raspberry, plum, and lemon aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, bright finish. Walnut undertone. Drink now.” - James Suckling, 92 points!

"Bright red color. Red fruit stands out, strawberries and ripe plums. On the palate, it is fruity with hints of spices and vanilla contributed by the wood. Smooth and elegant wine." - Winery

100% Pinot Noir aged in French and American oak for 9 months.

NQN's origins date back to 2001, when San Patricio del Chañar was developed as a wine making project undreamed of until that time. Two thousand hectares of Patagonian desert were turned into a beautiful blanket of vineyards. Bodega NQN emerged out of this development, located in a region with excellent climate conditions for growing vines and a significant temperature gap, a fundamental aspect that makes grapes ripe slowly and favors better sugar accumulation, acidity levels, aromas and flavors.

In October 2001 the first vines were planted and the first harvest took place in 2003. The crush area and the winery were built at the end of 2002, whereas the remaining facilities were finished in April 2004.

Bodega NQN owns 127 hectares planted with different varieties of fine grapes and has 1,000 hectares more of future vineyards.

The architecture of the winery combines advanced wine making technology and the esthetics of the Patagonian landscape. It owns a linear organization, and the winery, with a capacity of 1,800,000 liters, melts with the landscape through different taluses that level it off with the mountains locally known as bardas.

The estate occupies 5,800 m², comprising the winery, the offices, Malma Resto-Bar, La Posada and the wine cellar.

Malma wines are produced from manually harvested grapes from selected vineyards, and aged for 9 months in French and American oak. This adds a layer of complexity whilst the fresh frutiness of the wine is manteined and their unique Patagonian personality preserved.
