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.
