THE EXPERT’S ADVICE
This 13-day tour can easily be paired with a tailor-made trip in Argentina around Mendoza and Salta or with a few days in Patagonia. It’s a great way to add new horizons and flavours to your holiday whilst exploring the heritage of Argentinian wine.
Argentina is the country with the largest planted area of Malbec in the world, the country’s iconic grape. This variety arrived in Argentina in the mid-nineteenth century and has adapted very well to all Argentinian wine regions. It quickly began to be cultivated intensively, thanks to its health, vigor and ability to produce great wines. Today, there are many varieties of elaboration of Malbec, from young and simple wines to heavier wines after aging for many years in barrels, but also including rosés, sparkling wines and sweet wines such as port.
Its primary aromas accentuate the touches of ripe plums, or even of mint delights the palate with elegant and round tannins.
To develop all its virtues, this variety requires an important difference in temperature between day and night, hence its development in this region located at the foot of the Andes.
