Is Argentinian Malbec wine the best in the world?

Many people think that Argentinian Malbec is the best Malbec in the world (although old-world wine snobs might disagree). Some might go so far as to say that it is the best red wine in the world.

I certainly enjoy a glass of Malbec. It's the ideal red wine to drink with steak and the perfect accompaniment if you have friends round for a BBQ.

High Altitude Mendoza

This case of six includes three different bottles of Malbec from the high altitude Mendoza region of Argentina. Malbec vines grown at between 1,100 and 1,700 metres produce grapes with a taste profile that is very different to what is achieved in lower-lying areas. Cooler nights improve acidity levels, while the flavours and textures become more vivid and refined.

We aim to discover wines that deliver everything they promise on the label and then go a little bit further. This Argentinian Malbec Red Wine Selection includes three red wines that do just that.

More Information



In 1556 fr Juan Cedrón established the first Argentinian vineyards in Mendoza using cuttings from the Chilean Central Valley. Argentina is now the worlds fifth largest wine producer. The many different grapes reflect the country's immigrant groups: the French brought Malbec, the Italians brought Bonarda and Torrontés is typically Argentinian found in the provinces of La Rioja, San Juan, and Salta.



Malbec is a tale of two worlds - the old and the new. Malbec has become synonomous with Argentinia where the high altitude vineyards produce delicate, floral Malbec.

Yet, as with many things vinous, the grape came from France (where it was known as Côt or Auxxerois). Used in blends, including in Bordeaux, it's best known French expression is in Cahors.

Malbec grapes can be sensitive, particularly in wet climates or heavy frosts. It has travelled the world in search of ideal growing conditions. To mature, it needs more sunshine than more typically French grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

The largest plantings of Malbec vines in the world are found in Argentina. In general, Malbec is synonymous with Argentina, particularly the region around Mendoza. The Malbec grape was introduced to Argentina in the mid 19th century. Provincial governor Domingo Faustino Sarmiento engaged the French agronomist Michel Pouget to bring grapevine cuttings - including Malbec - from France to Argentina.

Malbec suited the climate and quickly became established as a mainstay of Argentinian winemaking. In the 20th century a shaky economy meant Malbec plantations were ripped up to make way for cheaper ‘jug wine’ varieties. Malbec vines were replaced with more fashionable varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon.

Towards the end of the century the Malbec grape underwent a renaissance. Growers searched for better quality and more distinctive wines to suit developing domestic and export markets. Malbec is particularly well suited to the local climate. Its potential to produce high quality wines with a distinctively Argentinian twist (is that like the Tango?) was seized upon.

The rest, as they say, is history. Malbec has found a natural home in an area with warm sunny days and cooler nights. Today it is the most widely planted grape variety in Argentina and accounts for around 75% of production. There are also smaller, but expanding, areas of production in Chile, the USA, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand (where it is usually grown for blending).
