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

  • Luigi Bosca Tempranillo Finca la Linda 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Appearing quite dense but youthful with an edge of development. Heavy aromatics, dark and honeyed, with sweet black fruit and gentle spice notes. A bit dull in the mouth with a refreshing herbal character but a hot and hollow mid-palate. The finish is fairly long with oak driven notes of caramel and toffee. 82pts Read More

  • Finca Flichman Malbec Reserva 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Typical dark dense Malbec color but not opaque. Very floral apon opening, very attractively so at that with melon, berry, toast and mineral notes competing and eventually winning out as the floral notes fade. Round and medium bodied in the mouth with bright acids but that doesnt prevent this from being a bit dull on the palate. Finishes with a l... Read More

  • Budini Malbec 2006

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Yellow Blue Mendoa Malbec 2007

    Served a bit cold, but an easy drinking malbec. Not as much fruit as i'd like, but its pretty standard. Bitter, surprisingly tannic finish. Read More

  • Bodegas El Porvenir Laborum Torrontes 2007

    Snoothrank:

    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
