Tasting Notes

This Malbec bouquet shows plum and some spice.

On the nose the 2016 Penedo Borges from Octaviano has an unorthodox metallic note.

The mouthfeel is round.

Wine variety

Malbec is a purple grape variety that is used in the manufacture of red wine. The grapes are known for their inky dark color and robust tannins, and are one of the six grapes allowed in red Bordeaux wine blends. Malbec plantations are now primarily found in Cahors, South West France, though the grape is grown all over the world. It is becoming more well-known as an Argentine varietal.
