The Argentinian wine farmers really needed this vintage. After small quantities due to severe weather conditions in 2016 and 2017, 2018 is a very good year both for quality and for quantity. The quantity is up 30% from last year. The growing season offered perfect weather. Not so much rain, hot days and cool nights, just as it should be in Mendoza.
Of course, it is early day yet, but the general view among the producers is that 2018 will be a very high-quality year.
