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 »

  • Graffigna Malbec Reserve Centenario 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Last of the Flight, and though I liked it a bit less than the other two, was still quite good. I struggled trying to determine the smoke note, because it was pronounced enough for a 'wow, what is that???'. The Cru description notes that it is 'mesquite and espresso' and funny, that is exactly what it was...great bottle. Read More

  • Casarena Malbec 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Dense and complex in the mouth, inky purple in the glass. 14.7%. Dry. A powerful Malbec, seems a bit young still, but it still has plenty, deep plum and raisin with cedar/vanilla, mushroom earth, and chocolate/mocha. Just Luscious. I wish I had a cellar to lay a case of this down. Read More
