With wine making at altitudes ranging from 1000 ft to over 10,000 ft in rare cases, with 3000 ft being a common elevation, Argentinean wines have good acid from the diurnal temperature range , while their warm daytime temperature produces lush ripe fruit. The rocky, mineral laden soil, at the foot hills of the Andes Mountains gives a depth to some of these wines that reminds one of Italian wines.
