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.

  • Barricas Malbec 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a bright ruby in the glass, with very nice clarity. The nose is chock full of ripe red fruit, mulberry, black cherry and plum with some floral notes of violets. The taste is actually quite nice (see we did get the love kind tonight!), with some ripe fruit up front, wild berries and tart cherry that quickly transition to some baking... Read More

If he wants a little ... sunshine, so the Malbec in Argentina tends not to have that quality, whereas the Malbec from France or CA might. So which is the "typical" profile of the grape?
