Malbec Wine Information



Malbec is a red grape that is popular in Argentina and Chile. While it once was also grown in Bordeaux, it is rarely used here in modern years. Still, it is legally one of the only grapes which is allowed to be used in a red Bordeaux blend.

This black grape creates a rustic, mid-bodied wine, but is most often used in blending with other wines. In Argentina it is almost the most-planted red grape, and is the third most planted in Chile.

Malbec goes well with roast meats such as chicken or turkey. It should be served at 58F and can be aged for up to 5 years typically.
