Malbec is a purple grape variety known for making inky dark wines with substantial tannins. It is one of the six cultivars allowed in a Bordeux blend and was made famous in Argentina. On Mischa we have a very small planting of Malbec, so the production of this awesome wine is extremely limited. Only 2 barrels were produced from the 2020 vintage, making the Malbec 2020 the smallest part of the Mischa production, yet one of the most unique and spectacular wines we have to offer.

MALBEC 2020 QUICK NOTES

APPEARANCE: Deep, dark magenta with purple hues.

NOSE: Blueberries, black cherry and strawberry jam, followed by rich notes of French oak and Christmas cake.

PALATE: Full bodied, smooth, succulent and well balanced. Blueberries and cocoa mix perfectly with the soft, yet substantial tannins that run to a velvety finish.

PAIRING: Drinks well on it’s own, but pairs superbly with Italian food, lean steak cuts and with richer fish such as salmon.

AGEING POTENTIAL: Ready for consumption now. Will age well for 5 to 8 years.

VITICULTURAL ANALYSIS

Malbec is known for making intense, darkly coloured wines with strong tannins, with the Mischa Malbec 2020 being no exception. This wine is very rich in fruit flavours and is an absolute pleasure to drink. Being the smallest part of the Mischa production, the Malbec 2020 is as exclusive as it comes with only 680 bottles produced. This exceptional wine is definitely one to get your hands on.
