The Grape

Malbec

Malbec is a red grape variety with its origins in France and is used to make Argentina's most successful red wine. It's a full-bodied, punchy red that pairs so well with red meats and is defined by its bold fruit flavours of plum, cherry, blackberry and prune, deepened by notes of chocolate, tobacco and coffee. If you like your Shiraz and Merlot, you're going to love Malbec!
