Malbec is as important to Argentina as Shiraz is to Australia, it’s among the country’s most widely planted varieties and the grape behind its finest reds.
But that is only part of the story. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot Syrah are joined by more eclectic grapes such as Tannat and Bonarda. Among whites, Chardonnay, Viognier, Verdelho and the distinctive Torrontés thrive.
“The quality of Argentina’s wines, not to mention their diversity, has never been better … I am more convinced than ever (of its) potential to become on of the most exciting wine-producing nations on the planet.”
Tim Atkin MW, ‘Harpers’
“The Malbec grape is Argentina’s secret weapon and the country’s most successful red grape by far, producing distinguished wines with real international appeal.”
