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 »

    Snoothrank:

  • Clos du Bois Chardonnay North Coast 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A pretty standard Chardonnay. Not bad but not great. Lots of butter here but not as much oak as I would like, making it less balanced. Some lemon seed tartness and decent heat from the alcohol. An easy drinker for weekdays on the back porch. Read More

  • Terrazas de Los Andes Malbec Reserva 2006

    Snoothrank:

    I enjoyed this. Smokey, Currants and a little spice in the finish. I bit too much alcohol taste in the initial glass but mellowed out as it aired. Rich dark color. Loved the color and a smooth medium to light tannin level. Read More
