CRU International – Chile Malbec Style


Warm spice notes and aromas and flavours of ripe blackberry and blackcurrant.  Chile is well known for these chewy, deep rustic red wines with intense cherry flavours and blended oak undertones.

Malbec is a black-skinned grape variety native to southwestern France (specifically the area around Cahors), but now better known as the iconic wine grape of Argentina. Through its success in the vineyards of Mendoza, in a few short decades Malbec has shot from relative obscurity to international fame, simultaneously bringing newfound attention and respect to Argentina as a wine-producing nation.
