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 »

Argentina on Snooth

  • Matias Riccitelli Hey Malbec! Mendoza 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Pinched red fruit aromas with a pleasant herbal dried basil and black pepper note coming through. Concentrated mixed berry, cherry and crushed flower petal notes on the palate with dark chocolate mousse and a hint of espresso on the finish, turning floral again before trailing off towards an earthy spice.

    Fresh lemon and pear aromas with light potpourri notes. The floral notes continue on to the palate where light peach, apple and grapefruit notes mix with good acidity and a pleasantly viscous mouthfeel, finishing with a bit more lemon and an oak note. Read More

  • Bodegas Nieto Senetiner Bonarda Argentina Lujan de Cuyo 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This is the regular release of Nieto Sentineter's 2013 Bonarda. This was a $5.99 Grocery Outlet special, of what is normally about a $12-14 wine in the US. Medium depth, nice long mid palate. Curranty, rich, savory warm flavors, definitely an Italian style of wine - if this is typical of the varietal, it's no mystery to me why this grape was m... Read More

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...
