Vineyards in front of Andes mountains in Argentina

Argentina is the largest wine producer in South America. Its best-known red wine is Malbec, while the flagship white is aromatic Torrontés.

Argentina's success is all down to one thing: altitude. Many of its vineyards are in the foothills of the Andes, so Argentinian grapes benefit from blistering hot sunshine during the day and chilly temperatures at night. Grapes become ripe, sweet and flavoursome without losing any of the zingy acidity that gives wine its backbone.

Although Argentina grows lots of international grapes – like Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay – Malbec truly takes the spotlight. In fact, Argentinian Malbec is the third most popular varietal red in the UK: and it's easy to see why. It's a smooth wine with velvety tannins and rich flavours of plum, black cherry and blueberry. If it's oak-aged it often has notes of chocolate.
