The vineyards of Argentina are located in the beautiful foothills of the Andes where clear blue skies offer long ripening seasons and snow melt provides an abundance of water giving healthy productive vines.
As with most New World countries, Argentina is eager to experiment with different grape varieties. At present though, the most important variety is Malbec.
Argentinean Malbec is produced in many different styles and these are reflected in our range. Altos Las Hormigas is a richly fruited red with certain creamy notes and compared with the subtle, spicy Lorca with its dense structure and firm tannins.
Let’s not forget the whites with dry yet full and rounded Pinot Blanc’s and Pinot Gris together with the floral and spicy Torrontes offering great alternatives in a world awash with Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
