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.

  • D - it's the VV. I haven't had either for years. Just from memory, they ... we imported some Tannat from Argentina at one point. The idea was that since Malbec became something so different in the Andes, why not Tannat? Alas - even that intense sun was unable to change the essential unsatisfactory nature of the grape.Everyone wanted to try it, ... Read More

  • Trivento Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec Reserve 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Spicy and ripe in the nose with pleasant earthy aromas of raspberry and dusty cherry. This is smoky and earthy in the mouth with more ripe berry flavors amidst notes of tar and forest underbrush. The finish is long with more earthy notes and hints of licorice and some lingering tannins. Read More

    Wine review by MPetrequin


  • DV - A really good cab from Argentina?  Most of the ones I've tasted from Mendoza were ok, but nothing compared to a decent California cab.  It looks like your 2004 vintage retails for around $50 with a rating in the low 90's, so it should be good.  Do you recommend it as worth the $50?

  • Trapiche Malbec 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Cassis and black cherry on the nose.Somewhat boozy. Initial tastes are soft peppery notes with blackberry fruit. Somewhat lightweight mouthfeel and a dry finish. Might go well with red meat, easy drinking but nothing special. Read More

    Wine review by HarperInTheVines


  • It was actually the first cab sav from Argentina that I can recall having.  I've probably had some cheapos in the past when I didn't care.  I don't think you would be able to buy this vintage now.  The current vintage is between $40-50.  The Catena "Angelica Zapata" malbec (2005) was the best malbec and one of the nicest wines I've had.  I have ...

  • Alberti 154 Malbec 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Had this as part of a Flight yesterday during Lunch. Opens smoky with bits of sour cherries, plum, and chocolate. Well balanced Tannins and Acidity with a very soft and round mouthfeel. Long finish and the more it sat in the glass, the more it developed with herbs and oak. Very well priced at $8 per glass. Read More

  • Yea, the Loire produces pinot noir, but nay it's not the world's best. ... of malbec (after Cahors and Argentina) as a standalone varietal. I'd focus on all those before their PN. Especially since the center of the pinot noir universe is not all that far away in Burgundy, which can be saved for another trip.Definitely park yourself in the midd... Read More
