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.

  • Hey all. Just had a private tasting with a new wine company in Argentina and thought I'd share. The story: Some friends of mine went to Mendoza recently to tool around the area and get a sense of what's what, and met an American named Daniel Karlin who had just set up a little "wine club" in Buenos Aires called Anuva Wines. You can read about it... Read More

  • Valentin Bianchi Elsa Torrontes 2012

    An effervescent blend of Argentina's signature Malbec red grape and merlot. A light alcohol wine with flavors of strawberry and raspberry. Our favorite way to enjoy this delicious wine is over a slice of lime. Read More

  • Alta Vista Chardonnay 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Good chardonnay for someone like me who tends to stay away from them. The oak was not the major player here. It gave it some heft but didn't weigh it down with vanilla or overplayed wood tones. All I thought of when sipping was golden delicious apples. Read More

  • Bodega Sur de Los Andes Malbec 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Deep purple red color with an aromatic nose of blackberry, cherry, and sweet spice. The palate is flavorful with a touch of lavender and lot's of ripe red and black fruit. This wine is dry, medium bodied, with lively acidity, medium soft tannins, and a medium finish. This is a well made straight forward fruity red. Good for everyday drinking. Read More
