Argentina

Argentina

 

It may come as a surprise to some of you that Argentina is the world's fifth largest wine producer. After all, in the UK at least, Argentina’s wines tend to be overshadowed by their neighbours from across The Andes, Chile. Previously the vast majority of its production was consumed in the home market, and it has only been in the last 10 years or so, since the quality reached International standards, that Argentina has established itself as a major wine exporter.

If you’ve never tried a bottle of Argentine wine, you’re certainly missing out. With vineyards having been established by Spanish, Italian and French immigrants, the varieties of vines planted is truly pan-European. There is Bonarda and Sangiovese from Italy, Tempranillo from Spain, along with French imports, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah (Shiraz).

The speciality here though is Malbec, a native of south-west France, which has found a true home in Argentina’s high altitude vineyards. At its best Malbec makes bold but perfumed, gutsy red wines that are a perfect match for the country’s national dish, steak.

If Malbec is the red grape, then Torrontés is star of the whites. Originally from Galicia in north-west Spain, this is now Argentina’s signature white grape, producing floral, spicy and perfumed wines of considerable elegance and finesse.

Dark ruby in colour, this excellent Cabernet Sauvignon offers a nose with notes of cherries and fresh plums. On the palate, there are redcurrant flavours with shades of green peppers, combined with notes of truffle and cassis due to its brief time in oak barrels, with a long and vibrant finish.
