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.

  • Tempus Alba Malbec Blend Pleno 2003

    Snoothrank:

    This is the extremly well-bodied, long-lasting and medal winning 60% Malbec/40% Cabernet generic top wine of the Tempus Alba estate. 13 months in new french oak - which you notice a lot - and 14,1%. Hints of pepper and red berries, combined with the expected vanilla, makes this one of my favorites so far (quality/price perfect). If you don´t lik... Read More

  • Antucura Malbec Blend 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Purple color with red ruby around the rim. On the nose this wine is packed with Ripe strawberry, Rose Petal, Clove and vanilla with just a bit of forest floor funk that keeps it interesting. Flavors of black currant and cherries sing from the glass and with time turns to intense dark chocolate. Seems to be a bit of residual sugar. This is a ... Read More

  • Finca la Anita Syrah Agrelo Luna 2002

    Snoothrank:

    I had the 2002 Finca La Anita Syrah last night and was pleasantly surprised with its overall structure and finish. Unlike other Syrahs, this wine was not too jammy but rather spicy and large. I had it at a restaurant here in Davis and now am on the hunt to purchase some of my own. TWO THUMBS UP! Read More
