Producers Colour Regions Grape World




“Malbec was originally one of the minor blending varieties of red Bordeaux, where it now accounts for a tiny proportion of local production. But its home now is well and truly in Argentina, where it has come into its own both as a pure varietal, and blended with Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot.
Malbec grapes are reasonably small, very dark, and juicy. Flavours most commonly associated with Malbec include plums, cherries, currants and raspberries. Fruit, as well as colour, may be perceived as black or red depending on the origin of the fruit, as well as the wine-making style. Argentine Malbec is generally liberally oaked, and even the earlier drinking styles reflect the resulting flavours – vanilla, spice, as well as occasional tobacco notes – well.
