I have reported earlier that Wine Control Authorities in Germany have impounded Argentinean wine and removed the wine from the shelves, because the wine contains the antibiotic Natamycin. This posting provides an update based on information provided for in the German press.
The Landesuntersuchungsamt (LUA) in the state of Rheinland-Pfalz has tested 29 wines from Germany, 41 wines from EU countries and 146 wines from non-EU countries so far. They found Natamycin in the following 5 wines from Argentinea:
Villa Paola, 2008, San Rafael (Losnummer: LOT N° 01/2009), Villa Atuel, 2008, San Rafael, Syrah Merlot (L-WT1377), Legend of Polo, 2007, Mendoza, Malbec (L 76605) und Terra Nova, 2008, Mendoza, Malbec (L: 90.0789)
