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.

All styles of wine are made from dry whites and reds, rosés, sparkling, late harvest sweet wines and fortified wines.

  • Catena Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A bit dusty and earthy on the nose, mostly dark fruit character of blackberry. In the mouth this is fairly clean and medium bodied, with some dark oak and dark chocolate creeping in toward the finish after waves of blackberry and some fresh acidity to brighten the palate. 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...
