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.

  • Bodegas El Porvenir Amauta 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Chocolate and ripe black fruits together with an oaky finish. This is a big wine, and requires a big steak. Read More

  • Clos de Los Siete 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Big, bold. Did I say big and bold? A wonderful value. For $15-20 you get an Argentinian blend that you won't soon forget. After 1 hour in the decanter you can expect black fruit, juicy tannins, leather and some succulent red fruit. I love this wine!! Read More

  • Fabre Montmayou Red Bordeaux Blend Grand Vin 2004

    Snoothrank:

    This is a great value. I got it for $13. The only way I can describe this wine is that it's very sensual. It's not a hedonistic fruit bomb, but it's very much like a $30 california cab. Very warm (not in an alcoholic way) and well made with lots of dark fruits. This won't hold for many years as the tannin level is low. Read More
