The Wines of Argentina 101
Taking a look at the where, what, whys and whens of Argentina
There are relatively fewer producers of both Torrontes, which would have to be included in any serious discussion of Argentine wine, and Bonarda, which I include on the following slide because I love the wines.
Torrontes has a very assertive character so you’ll find that the range of styles produced in Argentina is in fact rather narrow. It’s a very aromatic variety so winemakers tend to work to preserve the perfume and freshness of the grape. These producers are among the tops in my book.
Recuerdo Torrontés ($14)
Bodega Colome Torrontes ($14)
