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 »

  • Andeluna Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza Alicura 2004

    Snoothrank:

Very disappointing.UPDATE:After finishing 1/2 bottle of this Cab, I'm afraid I was too harsh. After about 1 hour, it opened up nicely and became much more palatable. Still young, might b...

  • Hacienda del Plata Malbec Zagal 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Good, solid Malbec. I like this style, which is not particularly jammy.Far more food friendly than some higher rated Malbecs. Not complex, just tasty. For a Monday night, with a salad topped with some leftover sliced steak, it hit the spot. It won't replace my favorites at the table opposite more elaborate food, but it will do for most purposes.
