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 »

    What I thought was going to be a tannic bomb, surprised me with a robust, leathery, silky, zesty wine with strong notes of black cherry and tobacco-mocha finish. What a great Malbec! Read More

  • Pulenta Estate Gran Cabernet Franc 2005


    If you are a Cab Franc lover this is a must try - they really got this one right - the price started at $20 and now my local wine store has it for $28! Looks like it won't last so try it while you can. I believe it will age quite well - I have a few aside for 2-3 years from now - cannot wait!! Read More
