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.

  • Verite Cabernet Sauvignon la Joie 2002

    Snoothrank:

    I was trying to enter 4.5 glasses but for some reason couldn't get the site to cooperate. Although this could be a 5 glass rating some day. Right now I think 4.5 is more accurate. In case my full review did not make it when I submitted a few moments ago, I found this to be a very good wine with wonderful complex nose. The relationship to the ter... Read More

  • We as consumers tend to get caught up in trends whether we like it or not. The ... ... in Italy and Malbec in Argentina work well with the spice and tannins imparted by barrique.

  • Trapiche Iscay Merlot Malbec 2005

    Snoothrank:

    A tremendous malbec. Velvety mouthfeel. Warm and creamy. Good fruit up front. Great nose with chocolate and smoke. Excellent with steak or by itself. Relatively short finish with soft tannins, but quite satifying. Most of what I'm looking for in a red. Hated to see the bottle empty. Read More
