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.

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.

    Ripe red fruit aromas - dark cherry, plum and red currant, floral and spiced.

  • Vina Amalia Finca Los Montes Negros Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Uco Valley 2013


    Generous fruit aromas of blackberry and black cherry, soft earth and good minerality on the nose. Quite fruity on the palate with a pleasant continuum of mixed berry, black cherry and violet petals, this is very approachable and quaffable, enough depth to stay interesting with warm spice and a bit of chocolate towards the finish.

    Nice complexity here with savory mineral notes of loamy earth, baking spice and classic black fruit components - mostly black currant and blackberry.

  • Durigutti Cabernet Franc Mendoza 2015


    Fruity but syrupy notes of red currant and strawberry on the nose with pungent smoky minerality. Equally fruity and earthy on the palate with a burst of ripe red current and raspberry fruit on entry followed by a pop of acidity and a slow, smoldering burn of gritty tannins and sharp spice covered in chocolate.

  • Bodega Calle Dharma Reserva Mendoza 2015


    Soft clay and earth with perfumed cherry fruit on the nose. Syrupy in character and heft, this brings loads of fruit character - cherry and red currant with a mouth full of concentrated fruit, rich spice, milk chocolate and chewy tannins on the finish. Read More

  • Bodega Calle la Mano Derecha Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Mendoza 2014


    Intriguing floral and herbal notes here with black currant and strawberry fruit and pleasant briny minerality. On the palate this is medium bodied, a bit restrained around the edges, but still showing nice blackberry and black currant fruit, quite dry with nice spice and good acidity. This presents a bit herbal at its core and is quite earthy by... Read More
