Argentine wines are characterized by having a great personality, with very expressive aromas, great volume and soft tannins, which give them fruity flavours. In recent years, Argentine wines have begun to occupy the top positions in wine guides, thanks to their oenological quality, which increasingly resembles classic European wines.
Lovers of good glasses of wine always opt for wines with Denomination of Origin from European regions. These products are well known, since they are areas with a long tradition in the history of wine. However, for a few years, Argentine wines have been positioning themselves in the market as a great alternative to the more classic European ones.
These are fashionable wines, thanks to their expressive flavor, with many fruity and soft notes , great structure of tannins and an excellent concentration in the mouth that is due to the climatic conditions of Argentina, especially in the western part of the country, in the plateaus at the foot of the Andes, where most of the vine plantations are located.
In this sense, the wines of the “Andean Terrace”, located in the province of Mendoza, come from vines planted at heights ranging from 600 to 1600 meters. This unique characteristic is what favors the organoleptic complexity of Argentine wine, very fruity and acidic, with fresh flavors that make them very elegant. In this sense, Argentine Malbec wine is one of the most appreciated by winemakers , with an intense red color, almost violet, and with a lot of structure.
