A juicy and fruity wine showing hints of orange peel and stones. A medium to full body, fine tannins and a delicious finish... Drink or hold.James Suckling

Country Argentina: Argentina is a beautiful place when it comes to wine. The climate conditions in its most important sub-regions help stave off insects, molds, fungi, and other problems that would impede production. This allows the winemakers to hold off on pesticides and similar tools, making the wines that much more delicious and compelling. It's definitely possible to identify various European influences on the region's winemaking style, but what matters most is the big picture. Once you start exploring Argentine wines, it's hard to stop, because there's so much to discover. Start your journey, and learn why wine is considered Argentina's national liquor.

Region Argentina: The largest wine producer in South America also holds its place as one of the most prominent winemaking regions in the world. Argentinian vineyards are mostly situated in the shadow of the Andes, on high altitudes but comfortably sheltered from rain, relying on meltwater for their irrigation. This fortunate terroir allows for a slow, steady ripening process which unmistakably provides wines that are consistently intense, vibrant, balanced between the sweetness and acidity with a bright, plump, fruity bouquet. The first Argentinian wine that comes to mind is Malbec. Though the grape is adopted from Bordeaux, it's Argentina that produces some of the most luscious, richest, highest-quality Malbec wines today. Mostly produced in Mendoza, these gems brilliantly showcase the mighty but beautiful spirit of the Andes and the life that's being lead there. Home to Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Bonarda varieties among many others, this region produces some of the finest bottles in the world. Potent yet layered, sweet but tart and packed with floral, black currant and spice flavors, these wines are not the ones to miss out on. If you're on the lookout for stunning reds, or delicate, floral, mouthwatering white wines, Argentina should make the top of your list.
Type of Wine Argentina Red: If there were ever a single word that could perfectly describe fine Argentinian wines, it would be "purity." Red wine lovers could easily become spoiled for choice when that choice involves varietals such as Malbec or Tempranillo. With a complete dedication to a given grape, each bottle tells a compelling story, so have a seat and listen.

Varietal Malbec: Malbec is something of an oddity among red wine grape varietals. It has traditionally been considered difficult to grow and implement in France, a challenging choice that often doesn't pay off. However, once it was brought over to Argentina, the world began to realize how mind-shatteringly appealing it can be. Nowadays, Malbec wines stand toe to toe with the greatest wines of the planet as Argentina's most accomplished red wine varietal.
