In the last century Argentinian wine has gained enormous popularity worldwide. International experts and critics as well as ordinary wine lovers recognise the high quality of Argentinian wines. The country produces wonderful red and white wines in equal volumes. Argentina is a country with a hot dry climate. Nevertheless, these natural conditions are well suited to winemaking. Vineyards grow in the foothills of the Andes and in deep valleys, protected from the wind, and are exposed to bright sunshine and cool nights. These are the ideal conditions for ripening grapes. Argentine wine has a rich bouquet, a strong aroma and a deep color. Argentina is proud of the Malbec grape variety, which local winemakers nurture to perfection. When purchasing Argentine wine pay attention to the blend, as you will often find a Malbec variety.
Argentinian wines have a relatively simple classification (as opposed to more complicated French classifications). Often, the label simply states the grape variety, year of the harvest and the name of the manufacturer. If you see the label «comun-vino de mesa», this indicates a simple everyday table wine. «Vino fino» - indicates a wine of higher quality and more complex flavours. Argentine wines of superior quality are categorised as «reserva». However, the state does not regulate the process of labeling wines, and so categorising wine is largely at the discretion of the manufacturer.
