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.

Argentina on Snooth

  • In truth, I have no idea what any of those things are, except perhaps acidity, ... preference for the wines of Argentina and Chile was just the luck of the draw when I was gifted with a couple of bottles, and my inability to detect the nuances leaves me little incentive to experiment much.  I have noticed, though, that Malbecs that have been a...

  • Alamos Malbec 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy and smoky raspberry and strawberry aromas. Quite earthy and dry in the mouth with strong, drying tannins and a short finish of blackberry and a touch of eucalyptus. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Had I known the origin, I would not have purchased this. This was characteristically dry. Red and black fruits were present with pepper. Read More

  • Las Perdices Malbec 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Had this with Lunch at Maguires in Addison a month ago. Nice simple little number. Soft, round mouthful, with loads of spice, deep dark fruit with nicely balanced low Tannins and Acidity. Can't see this improving any with age - an everyday drinker. Read More

  • Famiglia Bianchi Malbec 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Had this one with dinner last evening. After getting past the 'barnyard' aromas, the wine was just fine - tight and dry with bright tannins and acidity. Loads of earth and spice and near ripe fruit. Read More

  • Ruca Malen Kinien de Don Raul 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Velvety and smooth aromas of dark plum, dates and blackberries with vanilla creaminess and a pleasant chalky oak note. On the palate this really shows its complexity and is assertive from entry with powerful chocolate and mixed berry notes, baking spice and pleasant earthiness, tart focused acidity brightening the mid palate and sharpening to a ...

  • Ruca Malen Petit Verdot Reserva 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Light black pepper and red licorice notes on the nose with dark blackberry fruit and soft floral spice. Dark chocolate and blackberry fruit with smoky earth character and a perfect balance between the bright acidity and the structure coming in right from the start all supported by the complexity of ripe fruit, earthy minerality and a brooding fi...

  • Ruca Malen Malbec Reserva 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Baking spice and light earth with soft blackberry and black cherry fruit. Good structure and acidity create a backdrop here for a smoky dark chocolate palate of rich black currant and blackberry preserves that finishes with fresh spice. Read More

  • Zolo Signature Red 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Wine Sellers of Saugatuck, 8/2016. I have always been a fan of red blends, and I know that makes me a low brow to some, but to me they are just tastier (of course not all) and more drinkable than most red varietals in my price range. Read More
