Ask any decent afficiando what is the most popular wine in the last 15 years and we can bet that they will have Argentinian Malbec on their list...The Argentinian variety of the Malbec has been around for generation's but only in the last decade or two they have gained popularity in Europe and rest of the world to such an extent that any decent wine list in a restaurant would be incomplete without one of their samples on the menu.
Malbecs are super popular because they are Smooth, fruity, rich and not too tannic. It can practically be drunk with any type of food (with exceptions) and a good Malbec will not put a huge dent in your pocket. There are critics who say that Malbec is too soft and soupy and in the middle of the road type of a wine but we all agree that what do critics know hey!!!!!!!!
Argentina's biggest market for their Malbec exports is The United States of America, we were surprised to note that the wines sent to our American cousins are less Oaky and more fruity than the shipments sent to this side of the pond, Although it is true that wine makers fine tune their wines to the preferences of different markets. With the world wide web these days we are not just stuck with the wines only made for Europe. Argentinian Malbec can be bought online in England which is meant for the US market and Vice Versa, buying Malbec online has hit new heights in demand and figures during this pandemic.....and we the consumers are all the merry for it.
