Argentina's Mendoza has become synonymous with gorgeous red wine from the Malbec grape. Here's an exciting new release to our range. Silky, supple black fruit with a lift of violets. Just the ticket with or without accompaniment. Great value too.
Originally from southwest France, Cahors to be exact, Malbec has since the late 1990s been the number one grape of Argentina. We drink more Argentinian Malbec than anywhere else in the world and the best loved come from the slopes of Mendoza. Clear sunshine, pure snowmelt from the Andes and poor soils all add up to ideal conditions for terrific tasting wines. Ruta 7 is a new release, named after the road that goes from Mendoza through the main winemaking route. It's the one our Buyer Beth follows to search out the best wines. She knows it well. She is delighted with her new find and she's certain you will be too. Silky ripe raspberry and plum, easy, with lots of character too. Great on its own or with bangers and mash or even meaty fish.
"Classic Malbec with lots of bright, juicy fruit. It's a real charmer. Terrific value too"
