Malbec Wine

Hailing from South West France but now grown in some select regions of the world, Malbec is a thin-skinned variety that needs plenty of heat and sunlight to thrive, but when it reaches its pinnacle, produces wines of an intense inky red and rich fruitiness. The variety nearly died out in France after a widespread frost but was championed by French winemakers in Argentina, and the rest as they say, is history.

In France it is still present as a single varietal in Cahors, named the ‘Black wine’ after its deep colour, but it is in Argentina that Malbec has really come to life in recent years, where high altitude, sun-drenched vineyards fulfil the grapes’ every need. Malbec’s flavours are distinctly fruity, with cherry, plum and berries at the fore, but you might also get hints of cocoa, black pepper, coffee and tobacco tones.
