Argentinian wines to make your barbecue a success, not only Malbec

Argentina is known for its Malbec and its excellent meat. They both go amazingly well together. But if you want to make an Argentinean evening at home, which is quite easy if you have a grill/barbecue, you don’t have to limit yourself to Malbec see our separate text on asado). We explained recently how to make your Argentinian asaso dinner party a success. Here are some recommendations for a 100 % Argentine evening:

For aperitif:

Start with a Sauvignon Blanc from Mendoza, for instance from family estate Pulenta. It is fresh and aromatic (~8 euro).

Another option would be a wine from the grape Torrontés, even more aromatic and also a bit perfumed.

If you want an easy-drinking red try Proemio Syrah Reserve from Mendoza (~10 euro).

While you all gather around the grill:

Try Susana Balbo Barrel Fermented Chardonnay from Uco Valley (15 euro). Susana is one of Argentina’s most famous and respected winemakers. She became Argentina’s first female oenologist in 1991.

Or try the lovely Mendel Semillon from Mendoza (~15 euro). One of the owners of Mendel is the legendary Argentine winemaker Roberto de la Mota.

Or a Altos las Hormigas malbec.

To the meat:

Susana Balbo Signature Malbec from Uco Valley (~20 euro) will be splendid.

Mendel makes fabulous reds as well, try their Mendel Cabernet Sauvignon (~18 euro) or the Mendel Cabernet Franc (~22 euro).
