Malbec is a red wine grape variety that is originally from the Bordeaux region of France, but has gained popularity in a number of other wine-producing regions around the world, including the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. Wines made from Malbec grapes are known for their rich, dark colour, full body, and robust tannins.
Malbec wines from the Okanagan Valley typically have a deep purple-red colour, with a nose of plum, black cherries & tobacco. Depending on the season, these wines may have flavours of raspberry, velvety sour cherry & pepper on the finnish, with a grippy, tannic structure and a long, spicy finish. They are typically made in a dry style, with moderate to high levels of acidity and moderate to high levels of tannins. Malbec wines are often paired with grilled meats, as the wine’s bold flavours and tannins can stand up to the richness of the meat.
