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.

Argentina on Snooth

  • Trapiche Broquel Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Bold and peppery aromas of blackberry and dark fruit on the nose. Clean and tight in the mouth, it's smooth and easy drinking. Classic Cabernet flavors of dark cacao, baking spices and blackberry with just a touch of oaky vanilla and enough tannin to keep this interesting. Excellent for the price. Read More

  • Trapiche Broquel Chardonnay Mendoza 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Honeysuckle and peach aromas are light. Flavors of green apple and banana, cream, peach and grapefruit. There's a fair bit of citrus character and acid accompanying the fruit, showing that this was a cooler climate with a different aging profile than some of Chardonnay's more oaked expressions. A full minute later there's still a bit of an acidi... Read More

    From the 2nd dinner at Perry's. Seemed like the perfect example of Argentinian Malbec. Soft, well balanced spicy, smoky, pepper, cocoa, and toasted fruit. Great little one. Read More

  • Cepas Elegidas Con Tacto Malbec 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Considering that the wine maker used no enzymes and indigenous yeast, the Con Tacto is incredibly complex. The wine was not filtered or finned, maximizing potential for aging and leading to sensational mouthfeel with intricate, chewy, and velvety tannins. Read More
