Malbec is known for fruity spice
Malbec yields intensive coloured, purple-black red wine with spicy berry aromas. Typical for Malbec wines are nunaces of plums and tobacco but also aromas of blueberry, juniper, cherry, spices and bitter chocolate can rise into the nose. Due to its extraordinary depth Malbec only leaves a litte light through the glass and it comes to an outstanding dark colour. Because of that the variety is also called “The Black Wine”. Malbec has a high quality and belongs therefore to the six permitted varieties for the famous Bordeaux Blend.
Malbec is especially popular in Argentina
Malbec is original from France and belonged once to the countries most famous varieties. Especially in Bordeaux vintners liked to cultivate the red grape. But because of the vines sensibility for frost the wine growers lost their interest for this grape and started to plant varieties like Merlot. It is different in Argentina. The floors and the climate there let the grapes ripe much better and care for a rich, well-balanced red wine that profits from the barrique ripening and develop soft nuances of vanilla. The same can be said for Malbec from South Africa.
