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 »

  • 06 Alamos Selection Malbec Malbec Red 2007

    Snoothrank:

    for $10 and under this wine is a steal. opens up nice after 30 minutes of decanting. not a bottle to save over several days and the '06's are undrinkable now so I suggest buying a bunch of these and drinking them as fast as possible. Read More

  • Bodega Norton Malbec Reserve 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice, refined Malbec. Will not overpower you with fruit - this is more in an old-world style, which is a nice change of pace. Lets the fruit shine without being in-your-face. Read More

  • Tamarí Malbec Reserva 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Really like this wine! Deep purple color and tons of fruit. Soft tannins, so this is a very easy drinker. This is a great wine to have laying around as an everyday drinker, especially at this price. Read More

  • Bodega Norton Cosecha Tardia 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This is a delicious wine made from overly ripe grapes that give up extra sugar. The flavor is soft with lots of honey and a nose like wild blossoms. Great as an easy drinking wine by itself or after dinner. Read More

  • Septima Syrah Tempranillo 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Suprisingly delicious for the price. Nose of plum and blackberries. Dried cranberries on the palatte, and tannins that are not overpowering. A good medium body that you can't beat for the price; the type of wine I'd like to have for an every-day-drinker. Read More
