In this Annex two years ago we wrote that South
America's low costs and fine growing conditions
were attracting the investment and talent needed
to raise wine quality rapidly. To see how their
recent releases (all under $15) are doing, we
matched 10 of them(from five different wineries)
against California bottles of the same price.
Here are the winners. The wine winning by the
greatest number of votes is listed last.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Callaway, California
Chardonnay, Coastal Cellars, (Bargetto)
Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva, Etchart Cafayate,
