Mendoza

Get to know: Mendoza

If you're into wine, you'll love Argentinian wine. It's one of the top wine-producing countries in the Southern Hemisphere, and also its largest. It is a hot country and almost all of Argentina’s vines are irrigated, commonly and famously, using snowmelt water from the Andes. Argentinian wine is also defined by altitude. The vast majority of vines grown throughout the country for high-quality wine are planted somewhere between 1,000 metres and 2,500 metres above sea level. The higher the altitude the drier the air, and the more stress is put on the vines due to changing day and night temperatures the grapes take longer to ripen and this all results in fruit with greater concentration, more purity and complexity of flavour.

Key Regions for Argentina Wine

The biggest and most famous one is Mendoza, where they make tremendous wines from the Malbec grape that can vary from rich and fruity to dense and structured. The region is very hot and the style of the wine can vary based on the altitude of the vineyard and the winemaker's use of oak maturation in the winery. 

Key Grape Varieties

Malbec - The blockbuster grape variety. The popular commercial styles of bold fruity and lots of new oak with chewy tannins that you'd pair with a steak are still very much around, but for those who are experiencing a little Malbec fatigue, we'd recommend trying the new wave of fresher Malbec wines that focus on the fruit.
