Wine from Argentina is recognised around the world for its quality and flavour. Argentinian Malbec, in particular, is well-regarding by wine veterans due to the country’s commitment to the grape. It is the most important grape variety to Argentinian producers – which leads to full-bodied wines with high tannin counts and deep, rich flavours.
However, the country produces more than just Malbec. Wine from Argentina is varied and has something to suit all tastes.
Argentinian Red Wine
Argentina is famous for Malbec, but the country also produces easy-drinking Pinot Noir’s, Tempranillo, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The altitude of the Argentine terroir has also led to a wide uptake in Merlot cultivation.
However, it is Argentinian Malbec that put the country on the map of the wine world, with over 20,000 hectacres planted. Originally a French grape, Malbec has taken to Argentinian soil and created a reputation that fuels enormous demand from the US and Europe. Juicy, dark and full of complexity, Argentinian Malbec is the best in the world.
Argentinian White Wine
As a cooler varietal, Argentinian Chardonnay is grown in the south of the country to offer fresh, crisp taste palettes with lively acidity. Like Malbec, Chardonnay is originally a French grape but has now become a staple of the country. It is grown through the central, northern and southern wine regions of Argentina.
