Saturday 17th April - World Malbec Day
Kaesler Stonehorse Malbec 2017 is a big and juicy wine. It has plush flavours with a robust structure and moderately firm tannins. It has distinctive dark purple colour ad notes of red plum, blueberry, vanilla, cocoa, and an essence of sweet tobacco.
Malbec is a medium to full-bodied red wine, and thus, it begs to be paired with more full-flavored foods. However, unlike Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec doesn’t have a super long finish (or as aggressive tannins), which means it will pair extremely well with leaner red meats, and even lighter cuts like lamb or roasted pork. The pairing secret of Malbec is that it works well with pepper, sage, creamy mushroom sauces, melted cheese, and in particular, blue cheese. YUM!
