What does Malbec taste like?
What specific notes you pick up from your glass of Malbec can depend on where it was grown. However, there are things that are signature to the grape, regardless of terroir. In general, you can expect Malbec red wine to be jammy and fruity with savory notes like coffee, leather, and pepper—as well as a distinctively smoky finish that makes it a hit with barbecue and steak! It is usually dry and full-bodied, with medium tannins and acidity.

Cool-climate Malbec (as seen in France) tends to lean towards more tart red cherry and raspberry flavors, with more savory notes such as leather and spice. Meanwhile, the same wine from warmer climates (such as Argentina Malbec) will be more fruit-forward, with more dark fruit like blackberries and plums, as well as a hint of chocolate.

What regions are known for Malbec?
Malbec was first cultivated in France, and is still grown today in regions such as Cahors—not far from Bordeaux, which is why it’s commonly used in the region’s famous red wine blends. On its own, French Malbec is known for its more savory notes and tart currant flavors. Due to its poor resistance to cooler weather and pests, Malbec is considered a minor grape in France, but held in high esteem nonetheless.

Argentina Malbec is easily the most famous and distinctive style of this red wine. Malbec thrives in the country’s sunnier climate and higher elevations, which bring out the grape’s fruitiness and jamminess. Today, it is Argentina’s star grape: it even produces 75% of all Malbec in the world.

However, Malbec doesn’t stop at just Argentina and France. Like Argentina, Chile is mountainous and enjoys plenty of sunshine, which is why they also produce good examples of Malbec worth trying, especially with some barbecue. 

As the community of wine drinkers in the Philippines continues to grow, Malbec has become a popular red wine amongst Filipinos. Despite it being a lesser known variety than Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, its flavor profile makes it an easy pairing with many Filipino dishes. Think pork BBQ, arroz a la cubana, asado, and beef mechado. This makes sense when you remember that most Malbec wines we are familiar with originate from Argentina: a country that shares many of the same tastes as the Philippines. But, good-value Malbec wines don’t only come from Argentina. You’ll also find great options from Chile and the USA.
