Of the four most exported varieties by Argentina, only Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon had a good performance in terms of value, whereas Torrontés and Chardonnay still present negative results.
According to data provided by INV (National Institute of Viticulture) and prepared by Área del Vino’s Área Premium, throughout the year ended in February, exports of varietal wines show positive signs only for some of them. In comparison with the previous year, Malbec is the wine with the best performance, presenting an increase of USD 44.3 million, and 1 million more cases shipped. After Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon had a 3% increase. The same fate was not experienced by Argentina’s most exported white varieties, Chardonnay and Torrontés Riojano, which fell by 6% and 5% respectively in terms of volume. However, comparing their situation from 2009 to 2013, they show a growth of 5% and 3%, in volume.
