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.

  • Luca Syrah 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Rather restrained with smoky, earthy light toast notes over vanilla tinged raspberry jam with a minor gamy/barnyard edge.

Smooth and very polished, really refined an... Read More

  • Luca Syrah 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Brighter, powdered sugar nose, red fruits and candy aromas. Flavors are near cloying, very red and ripe. The tannins are sharp, though, and complimentary and drying on the finish but that's welcome here. Read More

  • Clos de Los Siete Michel Rolland Malbec Blend Clos de Los Siete 2006

Nice oak in the background. Alcohol seems a bit on the high side.I like to pair this with food from the region - churasco, etc. Read More
