What does a white need to have to be a good companion to the cold?
Argentina is a country of wines that are worth discovering. Whether you’re an experienced drinker or a curious one, these lands offer a mosaic as wide as they are exciting:…
There are many extreme places on the wine map: ones that define a particular character. Chardonnay for Chablis in France, and the uniqueness of Pinot Noir in Central Otago, New Zealand.
The path of Malbec is also the way towards elevation: the developments of one and the other began at a time when Argentina was a wine country outside the planisphere. Now, as they converge on a high, distant point, that road and that history find their moment of apogee.
At this point, most consumers know the flavour or flavours of Malbec, and most can imagine the taste of each region for the variety. And at the same time they have an idea, however primary, about the general flavour of Argentine wines. With one caveat: what today we call Malbec, the wines and regions of Argentina, wasn’t always so.
