What is Malbec?

Malbec is a purple grape variety used in making red wine. Known for its dark, inky color and robust tannins, Malbec wines boast flavors of blackberry, plum, and black cherry. Often medium to full-bodied, Malbec wines can also present notes of cocoa, tobacco, and coffee, especially when aged in oak.

History of Malbec

Originally cultivated in the southwest of France, Malbec was primarily used for blending in Bordeaux wines. However, after the phylloxera plague in the 19th century, Malbec found its true home in Argentina, where it flourished and became the star grape of the region. Today, Argentina's Mendoza region is synonymous with top-quality Malbec wines.
