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 »

  • Lurton Torrontés 2006

    Snoothrank:

    One of my favorite white wines, and a huge bargain. Crisp and light, yet flavorful. Great on its own or with food (cheese, fish). Usually can find this wine 2 for $12 at larger wine shops, yet have seen it for upwards of $30 at restaurants in Boston and NYC serving South American cuisine. Amazing value wine.

  • Susana Balbo Malbec 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Loved this rose -- wasn't too metallic as some roses can taste, wasn't too dry like a white, great flavor and body like a red. This is the perfect rose for both white and red drinkers afraid that "pink" wine is like white zinfandel. It will convert them. Read More

  • Bodega la Azul Malbec Blend Tupungato Gran Reserva 2004

    Snoothrank:

    One of my favourites in Mendoza. Pricey but a lovely, modern expression of Malbec. Super array of black fruit. Great acidity. Shows why Valle de Uco is a world class wine region already. Read More

  • Tamarí Malbec Reserva 2006

    Snoothrank:

    If you can get this wine for 9 USD you would be a fool not to buy it. I agree with the general consensus, very palatable Malbec! Read More

  • Montecinco Malbec 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Enjoyed this wine even more than the acclaimed Malbec Oak 2005. Only 2/3 use oak giving this wine the chance to show the Malbec qualities. Beautiful plum aromas and sweet tannins. Old world character here, a real gem. Read More
