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.

    Fruity and a little acidic. Not demanding, but not that memorable either. Would be Ok as table wine - not enough character to stand alone. Read More

  • Broquel Bonardo 2005


    This is one grape from Italy that has found a new, happier home in Argentina's sandy clay soils! Rich fruits that freely roll around one's tongue unleashing powerful flavors through and through led by cherry with hints of blueberry. The light smoke from a well oaked wine allows a melding of flavors from start to finsh leaving a smile on the mout... Read More

  • Gascon Malbec 2007


    This wine is fantastic. It's really vibrant and goes fantastic with a meal. For the price, it's amazing. There is no feeling of a headache after drinking this wine like some other cheap wines. It's a no frills bottle that we will be using a lot more now in our household. I'm normally leery about buying wines this cheap, but I'm glad I did!(I got... Read More

  • Kaiken Malbec 2005


    Personally I love it. As a beginner, I find it to be a great beginner's wine ;) Fruity, with strong hints of tobacco, which make it taste so great, to my surprise. Delicate, but solid. A great choice in price/value, at least where I live. Read More

  • 06 Alamos Selection Malbec Malbec Red 2007


    The wine is dark and inky as you would expect. The nose is interesting... ripe black fruits (especially plum) with a hint of spice, leather, and I would swear a little "tar". Once in the mouth you get a light/medium bodied wine with wonderful raspberry and currant flavor, very sweet tannins and nice acidity that makes the mouth water. The finish... Read More
