April 17th is World Malbec Day and here at JN we’d love for you to be part of it. This is a day to celebrate all that is good about Argentinean Malbec. Malbec flourishes in Argentina creating wines widely superior than those of its country of origin, France. During the 90’s, Argentina positioned Malbec as their star varietal. More than 10,000 acres were planted and it became the undeniable leader of the country’s exportations.
Each year World Malbec Day is linked with a different art because, let’s face it; winemaking is as good an art form as any other. Just like a great play or film, a great wine can create mind-blowing experiences, entertain us, lead to intriguing stories and help us form memories that we can look back on. So this Malbec Day, with your help we’re looking to bring a bit of Argentinean theatre to the shop. Why not show off your best tango moves? Or get a picture with our Lights, Camera, Malbec poster for the chance to wine a case of Malbec, or the top prize, an Argentinean chef coming to your house to cook a meal for you and your friends. Amazing!
If you’re new to Malbec, or just looking for something a little different, we have a great range of Argentinean Malbec here at JN. Our most popular by far is the Altosur Malbec, a bargain at only £9.35. This is everything you want from a Malbec. Its aromas of dark, bramble berries, cherries and liquorice lead on to ripe, fresh fruits on the palate. This is a perfect bottle of wine for any meat casserole or steak. Or why not go for our Finca Sophenia Reserve Malbec? Aged in oak for 10-12 months this wine shows complex aromas of plum and violets. Again, the perfect partner for a juicy steak. Or, if you’re looking for something a bit special, why not go for our top range Malbec Achaval Ferrer? This is an extremely rare wine made in small quantities. Aged for 14 months in new French oak this wine exudes exotic aromas of truffles, blueberry and black cherry- a perfect present for the Malbec lover in your life.
So join JN this Friday 17th April and help us to celebrate World Malbec Day!
