Malbec Collection - 12 Bottle
**Price includes DELIVERY**
Malbec World Day celebrates the day in 1853 when the varietal was first introduced to Argentine soil from its traditional homeland in France. It flourished in the Andean foothills outside Mendoza, producing wines of great intensity and depth, and today most of us know Malbec as an Argentine speciality rather than a French one.
But Malbec remains French at heart. Cahors in Southwest France has been perfecting the varietal since long before the Argentines got to grips with it. So, to mark Malbec World Day, we’re offering you a terrific case of French and Argentine Malbec.
From savoury and spicy to smooth and intense, set your taste buds on a journey from France to the Andes with this exclusive selection, delivered direct to your door. Salud! Or should that be ‘Santé’?
