4 Argentinean Malbec, a Bordeaux vintner is Argentina, Bordeaux

Malbec

It originates from Bordeaux and the banks of the Loire, from where it made a long journey to its Argentinan home which brought its world fame. In France it gives a rougher, more tannic wine, while the New World reveals its deeper colour and intense character. They water the grapes grown at the foot of the Andes, on stony, often semi-desert plots, at 800 to 1,5000 metres above sea level, from the melt water coming off the snowy peaks of the mountain and since the annual rain fall hardly reaches 200 millimetres per year, winemakers don’t  have to spend much on plant protection.

 

 

Bordeaux

The legendary wine region along the Gironde river with 7,000 winemaker and more than 10,000 châteaus that are either real or only exist on wine labels. The pebbly plateau of the Left Bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc) is characterised by Cabernet Sauvignon-based blends, while the Right Bank on the limestone plateau (Pomerol, St. Emilion) is ruled by Merlot. 

 

 

Intersction

What can the Andes and Bordeaux possibly have in common? One of our most favoured wines is Clos De Los Siete from Bordeaux’s oenologist guru Michel Rolland’s world famous workshop, made from French varieties. According to the winemaker, this Malbec-based blend can only be made where the four ancient elements of water, earth, air and fire are all together.
