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 »

  • Michel Torino Shiraz Don David Reserve 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly fragrant, with lots of blackberry, raspberry and an undertone of something herbaceous. On the palate this one is JUICY, with lots of blackberry, cassis and jam. Also some clove and just a hint of something leathery. Lots of bright acidity. Some lovely subtle notes of vanilla and oak on the finish. Moderate length. Good value here, for sure. Read More

    Wine review by JenniferT


  • Probably gets caught up a lot and some of what was thought to be Bonarda in Argentina is actually sometimes Charbono or Dolcetto. So maybe I was too quick. It's OK but never brilliant in Italy, at least those that I've had. However, that's not to say it can't do really well somewhere else in the world and I have had a few from CA that weren't ba...
