About the Wine
This red wine is made by Finca los Moras in San Juan. Relish the heat up when paired with spicy dishes; peps up grilled and roasted beef or lamb dishes. Formed from primarily Malbec grapes, this wine is vegetarian and vegan friendly. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark. Supplied by Penaflor.
Malbec is a deeply coloured, intense and tannic, but fruity red. Since Argentina has almost taken it on as its own, it's grown increasingly in popularity. Typically Malbec has flavour characteristics of baked plums, black cherry, violets, sweet spice and sometimes coffee.
