Argentinian Red Wine
A Little ABOUT Argentinian Red Wine
Argentina has long been known for its Malbec - a grape brought to the country after its roots were established in France's Bordeaux region. To this day, Malbec remains one of the county’s most sought-after wines and with good reason; evidence of Argentina as an unrivalled producer of the variety is backed up by its success at numerous wine competitions across the globe. While Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are widely available, it is Mendoza and other regions that, inspired by traditional French techniques, have placed themselves firmly on the international viticulture map thanks to their stunning expressions of Malbec. However, in recent years another grape has been making waves in Argentina's countryside - Pinot Noir, particularly from Patagonia. Because of Patagonia's southward-facing location and subarctic climate, we’re getting some really interesting wines from Argentine winemakers: perfect for those seeking something different from this exciting country!
