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.

  • Crios Crios Torrontes 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is boldly floral. It's a perfect wine for white fish or shellfish. It will stand up to a little spice or umami from capers and mushrooms. Read More

  • Clos de Los Siete Michel Rolland Clos de Los Siete 2010

    Mainly dark fruit on the nose and palate. Ripe black cherry, blackberry, a bit of tar, decent acidity and medium to light tannins. The finish is medium. Not overly complex or layered but fairly well balanced. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Opens up with Lavender, vanilla, & white pepper with further notes of nutmeg, and rich & sweet baking spice. A few swirls, and damp moss and cedar, green pepper, and oak. Nice big mouthful, on the acidic, but soft tannins, A long and savory finish with more oak and cocoa. Quite a little number, good price point, and would get better after a few... Read More

  • Diamandes Perlita Malbec Syrah 2012

    Snoothrank:

I was excited to taste it. I would have thought it was going to be mild on the tongue but my first taste had quite a bite as it lingers for just a moment. It ... Read More
