Sweet South America

When we think of South American wines we quickly turn to big, luscious Argentine reds bursting with fruits and flavours or zingy, refreshing whites from cool climate Chile.

But what Argentina, Chile and increasingly Uruguay all have in common is their ability to produce beautifully nuanced late harvest wines that offer a New World alternative to the sweet wines that usually dominate wine lists from Northern Europe.

The battle for South American wine producers is always to battle and balance long hours of sunshine with careful vine and canopy management to create elegant wines, packed with acidity.

Check out the late harvest wines being produced by esteemed Chilean producer, Errazuriz, like its cool climate Sauvignon Blanc (Hall 1, AB260) or Argentina’s Bodega Norton (Hall 1, E236) that has a wide range including Malbec, Rosé and Moscato styles.
