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.
