I've never heard it stated this clearly before:
What makes Argentina’s malbecs so good? The Andes Mountains are the main factor. Argentina’s wine regions are in the foothills of this majestic mountain range, irrigated by snow runoff and protected from Pacific Ocean rains. Whether in Mendoza, the country’s most important wine region, further north in Salta or Patagonia to the south, the Andes lend their influence to the wine. That influence is primarily altitude.
Thank you for sharing this, Jon!
