Laithwaites boast an extensive range of Argentinean wines and they are going from strength to strength. Much of this success is down to Malbec which is the country’s signature red grape variety. The Malbecs of Argentina are almost black in colour and bursting with dark fruit flavours. The robust tannins and mouthcoatingly rich flavours make them a magical match with red meats. With an almost perfect climate for growing grapes (little rainfall, long sunshine hours and the highest altitude vineyards) it is no wonder that Argentina is rapidly gaining its rapidly gaining its exports worldwide. Laithwaites has increased its Argentinean range in line with this success and now boasts an eclectic portfolio of over 50 different wines and comprising 17 different grape varieties. This makes it one of the largest portfolios of Argentinean wines available in the UK.
The Laithwaites Argentinean portfolio ranges from aromatic whites such as Torrontes, Viognier and Verdelho to the much more masculine reds made from Bonarda, Tempranillo and Malbec grapes. Demand for Argentinean wines has grown so much in the past year that Laithwaites will shortly offer its first ever mixed Argentinean Malbec case containing 12 stunning juicy hearty reds. Included in this selection is the Schroeder Malbec grown in the depths of Patagonia where Malbec's juicy, fruit driven profile is ideally suited to its desert-climate vineyards. Also included is our first Fair Trade wine, the Finca Federada Reserva 2005 made by the La Riojana cellar. This is made in a very poor region where the Fairtrade project will make a huge difference to the grower’s standard of living. Many of these wines have been highly recommended by esteemed wine writers.
The Laithwaites Argentinean wine buyer, Nick Taylor comments “Our Customers are quickly recognising Argentina and its winning combination of quality and value. They love the ripe but balanced flavours and are keen to try something new. There is so much potential in Argentina. The pure fruit expression and rich and full structure of Malbecs are key to their success. Argentina has proved that its Malbecs especially can compete with the world's premium wines.”
