Top Argentina Value Wine Brand of the Year
Wine and Spirits, June 2011
Wherever you wander in this world, musical folk poetry is often sung with accordions. From nostalgic French ballads, romantic Italian arias, cheerful German polkas to sultry Argentine tangos, their soulful songs enchant our senses. They bring us together in a joyful, shared communion. Acordeón Malbec and Acordeón Torrontes were created with the hopes of doing the very same thing. Salud!
In Argentina the wine regions are of a continental climate, where the main influence comes from the Andes rather than the ocean. Irrigation by the numerous rivers that carry water from the Andes makes the region fertile and rich. Wines show an amazing fruit character when grown at a high altitude, as is the case in certain wine regions of Mendoza & Salta.
Acordeón Malbec is produced from old vines from vineyards within the most prestigious appellations of Mendoza: Tupungato and La Consulta.
Acordeón Torrontes grows in the mile-high Cafayate Valley, the pre-eminent region for this signature white wine. The high altitude, low humidity, intensely sunny days and cold nights combine with sandy soils to bring forth the grape’s heady floral aromas and tangy tropical fruit flavors refreshing and amazingly versatile.
