£30.95 per bottle


Celebrate Malbec Day in style with this stylish Patagonian
Monday 17th April is world Malbec day so the ideal opportunity to open up this beautiful Malbec from the Patagonia region of Argentina
Malbec is a red grape variety that originates from south west France. Once popular in Bordeaux, it has fallen out of fashion there so now the only significant plantings in France are in Cahors (between Bordeaux and Toulouse).
Cuttings were taken to Argentina in the mid 19th century and it is there that this grape variety has risen to global prominence. Mendoza, high in the Andes mountain range, is the best known region of Argentina producing full bodied, deep coloured examples. However here at Grand Cru Co we loves the wines of Bodega Noemia from the southerly region of Patagonia

Bodega Noemia was founded in 2001 by Hans Vinding-Diers, a Dane from a family with outstanding wine making pedigree, who discovered an ancient Malbec vineyard close to the Rio Negro and started to make wine from it.  The bodega has now grown to produce two single vineyard Malbec and A Lisa, whose fruit comes from vineyards in the surrounding area.
Made from 90% Malbec with Merlot making up the rest of the blend, the A Lisa has a deep colour, with ripe blackberry and sour cherry fruit on the palate and soft well integrated tannins. Delicious now, the wine will also age well over the next decade
Argentina is synonymous with steak and this wine would be absolutely perfect  with a high quality steak – the perfect way to celebrate world Malbec day!
