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.

Argentina on Snooth

  • Budini Malbec 2006


    Moderately dense ruby color, still youthful but with a touch of incipient evolution. Offers up a nose of sweet fruits, some fresh nectarine, blackberry, tarry oily herbs, a touch of earthen spice. In the mouth this is a bit lean compared with typical Malbec but is fresh and easy with soft tannins and good acidity. The flavors are a bit non-descr... Read More

  • Bodegas El Porvenir Laborum Torrontes 2007


    My first tasting was quite bland. It seems I made a mistake and served it way too cold. As it warmed to closer to room temperature it developed an amazing floral aroma which followed through to the taste which also had a touch of honey. When it was too cold it had a bit of a petroleum flavor and no finish at all. So be sure to consume this a... Read More
