Originating from the Bordeaux region of France, perhaps now better known as the signature grape in Argentina, Malbec is among the “big six” for red wine grapes. The sun-drenched climate flavors the growth of Malbec in Argentina, and the success in the vineyards of Medoza has successfully brought Malbec to fame in short time. It paves a rigid foundation for Argentina as a wine-producing region.
Argentina’s most highly rated Malbec wines originate from Mendoza’s high altitude wine regions. The wine produced is typically a medium to full-bodied, dry red wine with plenty of acidity and higher tannin and alcohol levels. It is well colored that tastes of plums, berries, anise and spice. It has good aroma of earth, plum or chocolate.
