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 »

  • Dominio del Plata Malbec Benmarco 2004


    Big, bold, complex -- a mouth full of earth, wind and fire!July, 2006 Wine Spectator rated 91 pts with review: Lots of bold raspberry, black currant and boysenberry fruit, along with hints of mineral, game, espresso and mocha. Long finish pumps out fruit, but vibrant minerality too, with an intriguing ferrous hint. Drink now through 2009. 1,10... Read More

  • Bodega Enrique Foster Malbec Limited Edition 2004


    Extremely vegetal in the nose with some ripe fruit (class plum). Medium body/tannin - very smooth and silky finish. Some spicy, earthy. High alcohol was somewhat offset by fruit, but could have used more fruit. Point rating would be 92. Read More

  • Los Leones Cabernet Malbec Bodega Salentein Vino Tinto NV


    I had the 2005 malbec/cab blend in Argentina a month or so ago and it was the best wine i had down there. Seemed smooth with a nice finish and it went well with steak, which is a necessity when you're in Argentina. Cost about $8 US for a bottle and I'm looking to import some to the states for my wedding this fall. Read More
