Helicopter ride to Matetic wine estate, Chile

I've just written up my trip to Matetic, one of Chile's most interesting wineries, on the main wineanorak site (here). Here's a short film of the journey to Matetic, courtesy of the Loma Larga helicopter!

Jamie, I see you are becoming an expert in helicopter rides!

Looks very arid Jamie.Presumably,the wineries use a hell of a lot of water?

Keith, that's the limiting factor in further development in Casablanca and San Antonio. You're perceptive.

Luis, I don't turn them down. It's fun.

I just tried an amazing new wine from Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina -- called Belasco de Baquedano Malbec. It's 100-Year Old Vine, but just introduced in the U.S., its website says (http://www.belascomalbec.com). I had the Llama, and there are three others (Swinto, AR Guentota, Rosa rose) all from the same Malbec estate. Have you tried this? What do you think? I was amazed at how low the price is, about $15 for the Llama. Are all Argentine malbecs so excellent?
