Malbec is often considered as the national emblem of Argentina’s viticulture, however, there is a plethora of winemaking techniques which makes each Malbec unique. To name a few, distinctive terroirs, contrasting working methods and a wide range of products.
Today, we are going to explore the elaboration process of a traditional Malbec.
Needless to say, this winemaking process is not exclusive for this variety but… to pay homage to Malbec Day we are going to focus exclusively on Malbec!
The day of the harvest is an important event for wine and lays down the foundation for the entire winemaking process. Each winemaker decides his own harvest date which in turn contributes to the quality of the wine. Now, we’ll go over some of the key steps which will take us through the journey of a Malbec.
The wide range of production options that Argentina offers gives birth to a wide range of unique Malbecs which can cater to different tastes.
Now, have you ever spoken to a producer to learn how they produce their wines?
If you have some favourites, share it with us and if you don’t, VinoApp Wine Club will give you the opportunity to interact with some of the best local Argentine producers soon! Stay tuned!
