Malbec World Day – Argentina

Unbeknownst to us, April 17 was Malbec World Day. Malbec is a wine to be enjoyed for everyday occasions.

The classic pairing is steak, but Malbec is also a great match to full-flavoured pork and lamb dishes.

Malbec is a full-bodied red wine that grows mostly in Argentina. Known for its plump, dark fruit flavours and smoky finish, Malbec wine offers a great alternative to higher priced Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.

Argentina’s mountainous terrain provides a range of elevations and soils for winemakers to work with, leading to unique variations in Malbec. Malbec is pretty versatile, so you can have it with roast lamb, or a lighter fruitier style with roast beef. Either way, you can’t go wrong with a Malbec.

Viva Argentina!
