Malbec is a grape that can have flavours ranging from red cherry to blackberry and boysenberry, depending on where it is grown. It is often lush and ripe and works very well aged in oak, which adds cedar, cocoa and spice. If Malbec if the grape for you, then get stocked up with our Simply Malbec case. You'll find 2 bottles each of three mega Malbecs, offering a great mix of wine for whenever you want to enjoy it. Be it the everyday, the little weekend treat or the special occasion.
"Malbec is a fantastic grape that delivers really flavoursome wines. This case has three of our favourite, bestselling Malbecs from Argentina and shows off how versatile the grape can be. Get some food under the grill and pour a glass."
The weekday bottle- A very aproachable and easy drinking red delivering all the flavour you expect from a juicy Malbec. On the nose, plum and blackberry aromas are complemented by notes of chocolate and spice. The palate is very fresh with soft and ripe tannins. Unwind from a busy day at work with a glass of this.
The weekend bottle - This is a great Malbec with plenty of easy going ripe fruit and just enough depth and richness to make it interesting but not heavy. It has aromas of ripe black and red fruits such as blackberries, plums and cherries mingling with a delicate chocolate and vanilla note from 8 months ageing in oak.
Sottano Seleccion Blend
The special occasion bottle - Malbec also works really well in a blend with other grapes. This keeps a dominant core of 80% Malbec with a little Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc to create a deep, dark and brooding wine. It is aromatic with berries and violets with a wisp of smoke and black pepper. Bold and powerful on the palate with dark fruits, and a savoury texture, ripe firm tannins and a smooth lasting finish. One to a have with a quality ribeye steak.
