Wines of Argentina - A Unique Terroir and Modern Technology
Argentina's success in winemaking is due to its unique terroir, with vineyards located on the slopes of the Andes at high altitudes of 2,500 meters, as well as the use of modern technologies. The country produces both red and white wines, made from famous grape varieties like Malbec, Pinot Noir, Tempranillo, Torrontes, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay. These varieties have their own unique bouquet, which differs from those grown in Europe. The flavors are more fruit-forward, with hints of underbrush, herbs, caramel, and cream.
