92nd Wine.Luxe Challenge : The Southern Star 廣闊的南美高地

August 8, 2017

 

With a territory that is four times larger than France, Argentina has a wealth of natural ecosystems includes highly productive vine growing regions stretching at the foot of the Andean strip, to the West of the country, from latitude 22° south to latitude 42° south. The cultivated area covers more than 538,071 acres. High and low altitude, wide difference in temperature, coupled with the increasingly progressive wine technology and deep-rooted wine popular culture, giving the Argentine wine unique personality and quality. 

 

Starting from 1551 while the first vine was planted, the vineyard coverage spread widely in the central, western and northeastern areas, but the vast majority of its wines were consumed domestically. The late arrival of Neoliberalism in 1990s has finally led the country into the global market, while production of small volumes of top quality wines were boosted and the country has found its position in the global market.

 

 

阿根廷面積是法國的四倍,其遼闊豐饒的葡萄種植區,從安第斯山腳延伸到國家西部,從南緯22度縱深到42度,總種植面積達53.8萬畝。高低不一的海拔,廣泛差異的溫度,加上日益進步的釀酒技術和根深蒂固的葡萄酒流行文化,賦予了阿根廷葡萄酒獨特的個性和品質。

 

從1551年阿根廷栽種下了第一株葡萄苗起,其葡萄種植逐漸擴散到國家中部、西部和東北部地區,不過其出品絕大部分都供國人享用,鮮少出口;直到上世紀九十年代,經濟上新自由主義運動才引起阿根廷與國際市場相接軌,而小產量、高品質的葡萄酒亦愈來愈多,阿根廷葡萄酒終於在國際市場上找到了自己的位置。
