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.

  • Don Miguel Gascón Malbec Mendoza 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Intriguing mixed berry aromas with a note of toffee, cola and baking spice framing ripe cherry. A bit dusty on entry, this is smooth and easy drinking with a touch of tannin lurking behind ripe, restrained plum and cherry fruit, smoke and dark chocolate towards the finish. Read More

  • Alamos Malbec Seleccion 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Blackberry jam and maple leaves on the nose with a soft spice. A bit floral on the palate with soft jammy fruit notes of raspberry and strawberry and a shifting, earthy note coming through the mid palate and drying out the finish that delivers more red fruit notes of ripe cherry and plum.

  • Salentein Malbec Reserve 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Another one from Vino Volo; Descriptor is correct - 'Blackberry & Vanilla; Fresh & Fruity nose...hints of plum, blackberries, and a bit of vanilla. fresh fruit flavors...spark of Violet and slight floral character' A bit too fruity and floral for my 'Malbec' taste. Most likely, if other wine were around, would not have this one again. Read More
