Famous for producing some of the best Champagnes and premium whites from Burgundy, Chardonnay also thrives in the high altitude, cooler climate of the Andean mountain range. Unoaked styles show light, citrus fruit character, while oaked Chardonnays offers richer, complex styles with toasty, buttery notes. Chardonnay accounts for around 15 percent of white wine production in Argentina.
Tempranillo arrived in Argentina with the Spanish settlers, but it’s only in recent years that winemakers have started experimenting with the grape in the cooler Andean foothills, such as La Consulta in the Uco Valley.
