Extremely popular, Argentinian Malbec is an inky, medium-bodied, dry red wine with strong impressions of dark fruits on the nose and palate. This wine tends to have mellower tannins than its French counterpart.
Heavily dependent on where they are grown for variations in flavor, Argentinian Malbec has quickly become a world favorite due to the characteristics that the high altitude climate and soils impart to the fruit.
Originally from France, it is one of the original 5 “Bordeaux” grapes. It is scarcely planted in France anymore.
It has found an amazingly hospitable home in the mountains of Argentina from which some of the world’s best selling Malbecs are grown.
Starkly different from French versions in structure and flavor, this wine is a good investment for collectors, as the wine can age for several years before drinking.This wine also pairs very well with any savory red meat dish– particularly dishes that include spice.
