Argentinian wines have come a long way since the days of the rough, tannic, farm wines that first arrived in Britain in the 1970’s. Now you can find crisp Chardonnays and rich Viogniers and of course the signature Argentinian white wine made from the Torrontes grape. It produces a medium bodied wine – usually just off dry with lots of fruit – that is an excellent match for Far Eastern foods. The red Argentinian wines come in all styles and you will find Syrahs, Merlots and Cabernets in all price ranges but the Argentinian wine that is really making its mark is the Malbec. There are still some rough Malbecs out there at the cheaper end of the market but pay a little more and you will be rewarded with a red wine that is full bodied, with a rich, dense flavour and wonderful complexity if it has spent time in oak. No surprise that it teams up spectacularly well with a good Argentinian steak. More information on Argentinian wine.
