Malbec

‘Good Argentine Malbec, and there is a great deal of it for Argentina, is one of the world's most prolific wine producers, is deeply coloured, spicily rich with an exuberant juiciness and has as a trademark, an almost velvety texture’.

Jancis Robinson MW OBE

Malbec is THE red wine to pair with red meat, making it the perfect BBQ/ asado wine. Also enjoy it with stews, pastas with tomato sauces, and hard cheeses.

More than 30% of Argentina’s vineyards are planted with Malbec and it has the largest Malbec acreage in the world.  This variety originally comes from South West France (in Cahors, east of Bordeaux), where it was called Côt and has a hard, tannic style. Due to its intense colour and dark hues, wines obtained from this variety were once called ‘the black wines of Cahors.’

Malbec is most commonly enjoyed as a red wine but there are rosé, sparkling and fortified examples. In every case, its primary aromas resemble ripe prunes and sometimes mint, while in the mouth it is softly meaty and rounded.
