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 »

  • Santa Julia Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The look of this one is ever so slightly opaque, rusty red/brown in color and with residual sugars & skin pigments about. Aromas are fruity and deep, with reminders of blackberry, currant, subdued spicy peppercorn, and Earthy tones like soil and pine needle. The flavors are dark, and of dried black fruits (plum, berries, and prune), leather, pe... Read More

The taste brings me back to my time in France two decades ago, with a rush of dark fruit, blackberry, currant and bl... 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...
