Malbec

Like peanut butter and jelly, malbec and Argentina are a perfect duo, synonymous in the wine world. Once referred to as the Black wines of France the grapes origins are from the Southwest French region of Cahors. Originally the grape was called Auxerrois and later Cot, it was given the name malbec after being planted in Bordeaux by Monsieur Malbeck where it still is used today. In Mendoza, Argentina’s main wine growing region, the grape thrived and has created a wine style to please most palates, from the fruitier, lighter styles coming from the plains to the more complex, structured wines sourced from high in the Andes mountains.
