Grape expectations from Argentina (4)

By Zhou Siyu  (China Daily)

Argentine winemakers are by no means shy of competing in quality with other foreign wine suppliers, including France. Unlike other countries, the climate in Argentina is very stable so the vineyards do not have distinctively good years or bad years, said Gonzalo Carrasco, winemaker at Terrazas de los Andes winery. Moreover, warm or cold years give different fruit profiles to the wines, he added.

"As a result, our wine's quality has been improving each year and it is easy for our customers to form a certain expectation before opening a bottle of Argentine wine," he said. "They seldom feel disappointed."

Terrazas de los Andes winery, owned by the French luxury group LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA, exports 80 percent of its wine every year, its top three markets being the United States, the United Kingdom and Brazil. China is now indisputably the most important market, Carrasco said. "And we are confident of our own styles (in wine)."

Another advantage for Argentine wine is its reasonable price, which will help Argentine winemakers confirm their market position, many Chinese wine critics believe. "The Chinese will soon realize this is a good wine at a good price," said Tommy Lam, wine program director at Shanghai Jiaotong University.
