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.

  • Jelu Malbec Valle de Zonda 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Very rich and fruity (red berries and cherries). Soft well integrated tannins. A slightly alcoholic nose and a slightly tart finish - both of which dissipated. Give it another year in the bottle or decant before serving. Read More

    Nice golden color. The nose shows caramel, and spice with a wierd BBQ aroma, maybe cumin? Unctous in the mouth with medium high acidity. The palate reveals flavors of caramel, minerals, earth, maybe chocolate, and buttered toast? Weird strange wine, not sure what to think. 2.5/5 [NR] Read More
