Malbec

The Malbec grape is most commonly grown in Bordeaux and the South West regions in France. The main French appellation to grow the Malbec vine in Cahors in the South West, where the wines are leathery with flavours of plums and currants.
 
The French-grown Malbec wines normally hold a medium earthy tannin with medium acidity and blackberry flavours.
 
This grape variety pair best with leaner red meats and spiced dishes, which helps compliment and maximise the natural flavours in the wine.
