Christmas Wines: Elegant wines from Chile and Argentina

Initially Chile and Argentina profiled themselves as suppliers of powerful, easy drinking wines with a certain lack of elegance and sophistication. And it was a style that was very successful. But a lot has happened in recent years, at least when it comes to the more ambitious producers. I recently tasted some wines from these two countries and they all showed an impressive complexity, elegance and finesse.

Here are some wines to look for:

  • Alpamanta Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Argentina (approx 20 euro)
  • Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Reserva, Argentina (approx 25 euro)
  • Colomé Auténtico Malbec, Calchaqui Valley, Salta, Argentina (approx 25 euro)
  • Matetic EQ Pinot Noir 2012, Chile (approx 28 euro)
  • Vigno Carignan, Gillmore Winery, 2012, Chile (approx 30 euro)
  • Antiyal Pura Fe, Garnacha Syrah, 2013, Chile (approx 17 euro)
