Opinion: Este vino excepcional muestra la pureza de frutas y una gran complejidad de aromas. Hay un excelente equilibrio entre la fruta y la madera, además exhibe notas de ciruela madura, café tostado y chocolate.

Vision of the Argentinian wine industry: Our winemaking shows a strong varietal restructuring as well as international feature wines. It has high consumption levels in the domestic market and, even though we participate in just 2% of world exports, wine exports are growing both in volume and price. Argentina is staring to be considered worldwide as a wine producing country with a very good price-quality ratio. Moreover, Malbec and Torrontés stand out as the emblematic grape varieties.
