"Viva Argentina" Wine Enjoyment Pack
Experience six different expressions of Malbec, Argentina's signature grape!
Malbec is the perfect backyard companion as it goes so well with grilled red meats of all kinds and is a good choice for sipping on its own. With this collection, you can compare your tasting experience of one Malbec to another.
Malbecs will vary in complexity and flavor, depending on terroir, climate, age and growing condition of vines, time in oak aging (if any), and time in the bottle. Your experience will also vary according to whether or not you decant and/or let the wine breathe before drinking, serving temperature, and food pairings, if any.
These Malbecs from small, family-owned-and-run producers can be easy drinking and delicious or complex and amazing or anywhere in between. Which one will be your favorite?
