A Rising Star 嶄露頭角的高手

August 8, 2017

 

Until recent years, Argentine wine remains unknown for Asian consumers. Most of its production were self-consumed within the country. Coincided with "globalization" and other factors - Argentine peso has fallen 35% in 2015 followed by the government has abolished export tax, which greatly encouraged the export and its wine was then increasingly noticed by international drinkers.

 

Therefore we had the chance of tasting these beautiful but affordable wines from South America. Mendoza covers plenty of varieties and styles – sparkling are often elegant and indistinguishable with Champagne; native varieties Torrontés makes incredibly aromatic but dry wine, which is unique and characterful; Cabernet Sauvignon ripens easily without lost of balance; and the most successful Malbec flourishes here, with mainly black fruits often accompanied by enchanting floral nuances which early drinking, but also showing its potential longevity, in which complexity of coffee, leather, fennel develop along the years.

 

 

 

對於亞洲的消費者,阿根廷葡萄酒屬於世界地圖上未知的一塊,其主因是過往阿根廷人嗜酒,其出產多是自給自足,不求外銷。近年「全球化」大潮席捲南美,阿根廷葡萄酒也乘著契機蜚聲國際——2015年阿根廷披索匯率大跌35%,營造了良性的市場環境;再者政府又取消出口稅,大大降低了葡萄酒出口商的成本。

 

因此,我們有幸嚐到了來自南美價廉物美的佳釀。單是Mendoza一個產區,已涵蓋了不少葡萄品種及風格,讓參加者大開眼界——產自高地的氣泡酒細緻優雅,矇瓶下跟列級香檳難以分辨;阿根廷本土品種Torrontés甜美而不膩,絕對是該國的寶藏;赤霞珠在適中的氣候下成熟而克制;最成功的當然是阿根廷國寶馬爾貝克,濃郁的黑果中滲出花香,既適合年輕飲用,也有能力塑造出陳年風格,賦予酒釀咖啡、皮革、茴香、朱古力等複雜的韻味。阿根廷的深邃潛力,尚待世界去發掘。
