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.

  • Familia Schroeder Maria Y Adelina S.a. Familia Schroeder Pinot Noir-Malbec 2003

  • Cueva de las Manos Malbec 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A lot going on in this wine! At first whiff, I catch roasted pecan and a little chocolate and maybe a little leather. Full-bodied, velvety, dark cherry with oak with a nice lingering finish. After the oak, it ends on a slight fruity note. I like this! Read More

    I had this at the Bonefish Grill. They always serve the reds at 65 degrees. This was one of the best values I've had in wine. I bought a case right after dinner. It has a clean bouquet and nice finish. Best I've had under $12. Read More

    Ruby-red color that leaves legs down the side of the glass. Smells like fruity yet caramel and earth tones too. Nice oak that lingers. I would buy this again. i only paid $7! Read More
