A Brief History of Argentine Malbec

Argentina is the 5th largest producer of wines worldwide and has a 500 year history of cultivating.  Since the Spanish brought the first vines to Argentina in 1556, Argentina has been successfully producing some of the best wines thanks to its terrain and favorable conditions.

Argentina excelled in wine producing until the 1920s when the worldwide economic depression sent the industry into decline. In the 1980s, after significant political and economic turmoil, Argentina returned to a democracy and opened the economy to foreign investment. The famous “Flying Winemakers” from France, United States, and Italy began to investigate the potential of Argentine wines. They discovered that Malbec responded to the Mendoza area like nowhere else in the world. All that was needed was new technology & equipment and a strong focus on producing quality wines. After just a few years Argentina took the lead in producing the best Malbec and became the main source worldwide.

Today over 50,000 acres in Mendoza are dedicated to Malbec cultivation. Malbec along with many other varietals from Argentina routinely win awards from prestigious competitions and are raved about in wine magazines and other publications. For those wanting to enjoy a Malbec, the only true source with consistent high quality is from Argentina.

Why Is Argentine Malbec So Good

Terroir

Terroir has everything to do with making wine.

Terroir has to do with region.  Factors such as sun, soil, climate, weather, altitude, the type of pruning, how the vineyard is irrigated, even the slant of the hillside, affect the production of wine grapes.  That is what defines a grape.  Even before the wine is produced, the work starts in the vineyard.

Mendoza’s terrain and climate are perfect for producing quality wines, especially Malbec. The vineyards surrounding Mendoza are in the shadow of the Andes, with a semi-desert climate, alluvial soils, and elevations are generally above 3000 feet. This altitude and wide thermal amplitude of hot days and cool nights contribute to the intensity of color, phenolics and tannins while retaining a balance with the grapes’ natural acidity.

Argentine Malbec

Mendoza typically produces Malbec wines of excellent color and concentration, with juicy berry and black fruit flavors coupled with medium acid and moderate tannins.

Food Pairings

For the best Malbec wine and food pairing tip, ask anyone from Argentina. They will tell you Malbec is perfect with grilled or barbecued meats and sausage. Due to its rich, supple textures and spicy personality, match Malbec with beef, veal, chicken, pork, sausage, braised or stewed dishes, spicy cuisine, cured meats and dry cheeses.
