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.

    Snoothrank:

    A Tasting Room quarterly selection. Wine made especially for Lot 18. Here is the description: 'Rustic, earthy and even a bit restrained at first, give this wine some air and you'll find excellent fruit concentration with notes of dark cherries and blackberries, plus a hint of vanilla and a meaty, earthy finish. The wine finishes dry...' This on... Read More

  • Antucura Malbec 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Unfortunately, I think that the bottle was a bad one, not terrible or completely undrinkable, but a certain barnyard funk on the nose and in the taste, with a color that was a bit brownish, rather than the brilliant purple/garnet typically present in others. Too bad, because what was noticeable besides the funk, was a great Malbec Full Bodied, L... Read More

  • Santa Julia Pinot Grigio Plus 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Pale lemon color. Medium minus intensity light fruit aromas - mostly citrus and tropical fruit, with lemon and papaya showing most on the nose. Palate is fresh and clean, good levels of acidity, full flavored lemon and melon flavors, and a clean finish. More full flavored than other Pinot Grigio wines. Definitely worth the price. Read More
