THE VARIETY

Malbec

Malbec was originally from the South-West of France. Today, though, 75% of the world’s Malbec is in Argentina. Argentinian Malbec tends to have brighter acidity and herbaceous notes. The French counterpart is more earthy, has higher tannins and flavours of blackcurrant and liquorice. The varietal is mellow enough to have with appetizers but also has enough body to pair with rich foods, like lamb. You will find Malbec in a lot of beautiful red blends too.

 

THE REGION

Rhône

The Rhône wine region is in Southern France. It is France’s third largest wine producing region. The area has two sub regions; Northern Rhône and Southern Rhône. Despite the close proximity, they have very different soils, geography, climate and grape varieties. The south is known for leathery and fruity red blends. Primary varietals here include GSM Blend, Rosé, Marsanne Blend, Muscat Blanc. The north, meanwhile, produces savoury, herbaceous Syrah, as well as Marsanne and Viognier.
