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 »

  • Altos las Hormigas Bonarda Colonia las Liebres 2005


    A little all over the place. Slightest hint of grape blow pop on the nose and finish, but also some awkward tannins and heat that the fruit couldn't disguise. Read More

  • Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec Alta Angelica Vineyard 2004


    The low end Catena Malbec leave a little to be desired, but the Alta epitomizes ... wonderful New World wines of Argentina. A sip of this wine will bring visions of galloping horses across the rolling pampas. A hard charging, yet deceptively smooth win Read More

  • Dominio del Plata Ben Marco Malbec 2005


    Tastes exactly like Alamos Malbec at twice the price. A little extra flavor profile of Lifesavers' Creme Savers Raspberries n' Creme. Delicious. Read More

  • Naiara Malbec Reserva 2005


    I had the 2006 which is just out. Intense, clear wine. Hints of blackberries and vanilla. Earthy without the "dirty" taste some of the Argentinian wines produce. A beautiful example of what the Mendoza Malbec's can be at an outstanding price. I have tasted the higher end Catena and others in the Mid-20's and this blows them away. Run get some! Read More
