Virgin Wines Raises a Glass to Malbec World Day

Malbec 2

Here at Virgin Wines, we will be raising a glass to Argentina’s famous grape as part of the celebrations for Malbec World Day (MWD) on 17th April.  We are flying the flag for Argentina by providing recommendations to wine enthusiasts about what makes Argentina’s signature grape so special.

Jay Wright, CEO, Virgin Wines comments: “Despite having French roots in Bordeaux, Malbec is now more famous in Mendoza, Argentina. We just love the deep, full bodied wines that the region produces and we know our customers are great fans too, regularly scoring it highly in reviews. We look forward to championing Malbec World Day and bringing this interesting grape to the attention of even more wine enthusiasts.”

With blackberry fruit and spice loading the palate, this is a delicious, juicy, forward-drinking wine. It has a certain meaty quality, to be expected with an Argentinean red wine and is the perfect food match.
