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 »

  • Tapiz Malbec 2007


    Excellent value from a region of the world I don't know much about - winewise. To me, it's a welcome shift from merlot as it is as robust but not as heavy. Read More

  • Viña Cobos Malbec Felino 2007


    Inky purple color with violet hues around the edge. Fairly sharp gradient from edge to center. Aromoas of alcohol, black cherries and hay. Smokey dary fruits (plums and cherries) from beginning to the middle. Fruit lingers on the palatte for a few minutes afterwards. Excellently balanced. Read More

  • Don Rodolfo Torrontes 2007


    This delightful wine is a translucent pale golden hue in color. When the cork is pulled, the aroma will fill the air with delicate floral hints of lavender and gardenia wafting through honeysuckle. Upon the lips the soft nature of the wine first appears with wonderful hints of balance and lightness. On the fore of the tongue, you will experience... Read More
