So apparently today is World Malbec day… who knew?? If theres ever been a good reason on a Tuesday in the middle of April to crack open a decent Malbec… well today it is.
From the recent press tastings these two were really great,
and of course this…
Both Argentinian but wondered if anyone had tasted any others which you think are worth “adding”?
I haven’t had the chance to taste the Piletas or any of the Cahors Malbecs yet.
I think you’re right , Malbec is becoming far more diverse than it was even 6 years ago … it’s almost like Chardonnay with climate, winemaking and terroir playing a big part in how it’s moving forward !
I still buy the traditional Dona Paula Malbecs but am loving some of the newer ones as well , although granted, very different .
You are starting to see more of the high altitude Malbecs on the shelves, giving a fresher juicier take on the grape, and the more southern Patagonian vineyards are coming on stream, Zuccardi do more than one in those sectors and they are good and the Vinalba Patagonian Malbec also , if you can find it.
