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.

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 »

Cannot remember much about it, for I had it quite a few months ago, but seem to remember that it was similar to these tasting notes from Wine Advocate...'The very showy, open and aromatic nose is very balsamic and spicy with aromas of wild herbs, especially thyme, juicy blueberries and violets. This is a ripe Malbec... Read More
