International velvet, the Malbec Grape ... Argentina ...
Dense, dark and powerful, here are 2 Argentinian Malbecs which I have truly enjoyed:
1) Argento Malbec - Sainbury D.O.
Made by the respected Catena Winery, the pioneer of single varietal Malbecs, this is a best value style with ripe plum fruit, hints of cocoa and spice in the finish.
2) Terrazas de Los Andes Reserva Malbec - Selfridges D.O.
The wines are grown on terraces in the foothills of the Andes at approx 1.000 metres above sea level. A muscular well structured red with a complex silky mouthfeel and a whiff of smoke and cocoa that wraps itself around the rich cherry fruit.
