Wine grape 'Malbec' (Eng.) , Wyndruif 'Malbec' (Afr.)
Malbec is a purple grape variety used in making red wine, grown mostly in Argentina, it is known for its plump, dark fruit flavors and smoky finish. Malbec quickly became known as a blending grape in Bordeaux’s top 5 wine grapes. However, because of the grapes’ poor resistance to weather and pests, it never surfaced as a top French variety. Instead, it found a new home in Mendoza, Argentina.
