Argentine Wine

Argentina is one of the top five wine-producing countries in the world. For a long time, most of the wine was made for local consumption. But in the past quarter-century, an increasing number of vintners began making very serious releases with the most widely planted red grape, Malbec. These made a big splash on the international scene, winning awards, garnering high ratings and amassing enthusiastic disciples. Torrontes is the star indigenous white grape, now on many restaurant menus for its refreshing, aromatic qualities and affordability. An increasing number of international grapes are grown, most notably Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. All styles of wine are made from dry whites and reds, rosés, sparkling, late harvest sweet wines and fortified wines.

Argentina boasts an impressive number of wine-makers under the age of thirty-five, and a growing number of women innovating the field. This is a country that has learned that investing quality and Read more »

I love life outdoor and wine. I have travelled a lot trying to understand the influence of soil over wine quality. It is amazing.

  • Decero Malbec Remolinos Vineyard Agrelo, Mendoza 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Muddy Cranberry coloration, with blackness against light and reddish hues around the rim....semi opaque. Aromas that are of heavy leather, tobacco, deep rooted spice, slight booze notes until it gets a little air, soil, Earth, and a charred oaky smoke aroma that lingers throughout the experience. Flavors follow suit with heavy leather, tobacco... Read More

  • The Gaucho Club 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This Malbec pours a beautifully aged tawny color with the end of the fresh purple and raspberry juice hues lingering around the rim. Clarity is nice as well.....The aromas are most definitely oak rich, meaty and full of charred Earth. With some oxygen however, things round out and the subtle spice of the Malbec grape shines through, along with... Read More

  • Tannat's better in France, but then I think that about Cahors vs. Argentina for Malbec, too. Though even in France it's not always easy to find good ones. Has been some demand for the last decade or two since its health benefits have been touted, but it's basically just grown south of Bordeaux towards Spain and its limited market hasn't forced c...

  • Conquista Oak Cask Malbec Argentina 2010

    Richer and fuller than I had any right to believe it would at this stage. Plenty of dark berry fruit left at this stage, earth and moderate tannins combine with still good acidity. Faded some - 86 points - Paul Read More

  • Flor de Naranja Lujan de Cuyo Torrontes 2016

    Snoothrank:

    A recent Tasting Room selection. White, pale silver gold in the glass. Medium low viscosity. Opens with red berry yeast; then lime rose petal and elderflower; then more floral notes and a bit of slate and fresh wood. Much of this carries over to the palate. Medium dry with loads of acidity and medium light body. As it opens the acidity mellows o... Read More

  • Argentina is destined for success in the production of fine wines, because there are all the elements for excellent raw material (grapes). Is otherwise considered as natural elements, the water that comes from the thaw of the Andes, the dry land and with minimal humidity, and more than 300 days of sunshine a year, and little nesecidade use of pe...
