13 Celsius Presents Terroir Tasting Series Part 4: Malbec says
For the next installment of our terroir tasting series, we’ve decided to showcase a single varietal: malbec. This is a grape that has become insanely popular over the past decade when the wines from Argentina flooded the market and made malbec a familiar word. Because of Argentina’s distinct terroir and optimum growing conditions, most people expect Argentine malbecs to be lush, dark fruit bombs. Would you guess that the birthplace of malbec is actually in France and not Argentina? Although Argentina is home to more than 70% of the world’s plantings, malbec has been grown in France for centuries. It is used as one of the components in Bordeaux blends and more famously, hails from a town named Cahors, which claims to have the first ever malbec planted in its soils.

Currently, malbec is being cultivated in almost every wine producing country and sometimes goes by other names such as Côt and Pressac. Due to the varying growing conditions of each country, the grape also has many faces from light and fruity to dark and brooding.

Join us on Tuesday, February 2nd to taste a flight of five different malbecs from five different countries and experience their versatility. Our knowledgeable staff will be on hand to explain the differences and unique terroirs where the wines have originated. We will offer all selections to take home at a one-day-only special retail price.
