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.

  • Luna Rosa Malbec Procedencia Mendoza 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This was my first Malbec. Not bad. According the label, it was described as having more berry and fruit than I experienced. Nice soft fruit and spice on the nose, but on the tougue I didn't detect much. Strong enough tannins to dry out the tongue. All in all, though, it was smooth and I didn't have any trouble finishing the bottle. Read More

  • Bodega Norton Privada 2003

    Snoothrank:

    From a typical good quality red wine glass this showed wood and earth with a bit of heat. There were nice notes of leather and a touch of funk/forest floor and a touch of pencil lead. This was matte and rich in the mouth with finely polished tannins and good supporting acids bolstering black fruits with balsamic edges and a nice mineral cut on t... Read More

  • Norton Perdriel Single Vineyard 2003

    Snoothrank:

    In a word, sexy. This mature, smooth wine draws you in with its nose of tobacco, leather, and French oak and absolutely does not disappoint. Markedly complex structure that definitely surpasses my level of winespeak skill. The fruit of the malbec is mated with the sensuality of the merlot, while the cabernet sauvignon carries the lugggage to rou... Read More

  • Carmelo Patti Red Blend Gran Assemblage 2002

    Snoothrank:

    Even decanted and with asado steak I watched being cooked in Mendoza, this one gets docked because I compared it to the 2003. Carmelo Patti definitely shows his love with this remarkably complex blend. Markedly complex and gratifying, it remains quite unlike any other similar blends that I've enjoyed. Have with game or otherwise [char]grilled re... Read More
