DRINK OF THE WEEK
13th September 2021
Buenas Vides Malbec
Aldi 5.79
Drinker Rating 89


Malbec's still selling well - it's been adopted as the national grape of Argentina despite a long and proud history in France - particularly Bordeaux (where it's known as 'cot').

The grape seems to work well in cooler, sunnier spots and Argentina seems to have perfect growing conditions along with the skill in the winery to make consistently good and very affordable drinkable reds.

This is perfect at the price, the right amount of blackberry and raspberry fruit character along with a decent tannic backbone that gives lovely structure but is not imposing.
Lovely wine for the oncoming autumn.

Cheers!
