Discover a wonderful diversity of styles from this dynamic wine-producing region. With the snow-capped Andes mountains providing a stunning backdrop, Argentinian vineyards have an enviable location. Summers are sunny, allowing the grapes to ripen fully, while melting winter snow provides ample water for the vines. Argentina produces some of the New World's 'oldest world' styles because the history of Argentinian viticulture has seen significant European influence. Recent foreign investment has also been driven by Dutch, Spanish, Italian and Austrian finance.
The wines feature familiar international grape varieties, and intense sunlight ensures richness and ripe fruit characters that are immediately attractive. Alongside its celebrated relationship with Malbec, Argentina is the spiritual home of the aromatic white Torrontés grape. Of Spanish origin, this has elegant floral notes, along with candied fruit and passion fruit flavours. The climate also suits Chardonnay beautifully, which tends to be rich, juicy and fruity here.
Argentina has everything from vibrant youthful exuberance to age-worthy classics - we're sure you'll find something you love.
