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.

  • Bodega El Esteco Tannat 2007


    This lovely wine from Salta is a bargain beauty. Great depth, dark fruit and spice profile. It would be great with game, meat dishes and richer pasta sauces, stews, etc. Mendoza isn't the only game in town anymore, and that is why progressive-minded producers like Michel Torino are dedicating many aspects of their work in Salta. Look out for ... Read More

    Not bad at all; pretty good value for every day drinking. Cooler climate dominates where the Syrah is cultivated, and you can really tell in the blend. Read More

  • Finca Flichman Malbec Reserva 2007


    On the outset, I'm a huge fan of the depth and complementary aspects one can find in wines made from single varieties farmed at differing altitudes. This one seemed promising immediately before uncorking, as a 50/50 Malbec blend from such distinctive micro-climates (Tupungato and Barrancas) would seem like a real winner. Well, it would have be...
