Malbec grapes

Malbec used to be more commonly known as Cot, in its original home of Cahors, in south-west France. The grape is still grown there, but has had nowhere near the international renown that its South American incarnation, Malbec, has had. Malbec was brought to Argentina in 1868 and today is the most widely planted variety in the country, found in every wine-growing region. You will also find Malbec/Cot in Italy, Turkey, Israel, Chile, Australia and New Zealand. Malbec is made in a wide variety of styles from soft, fruity and easy-drinking, to rich, intense and ageworthy, but most tend to be deep in colour with concentrated dark fruit flavours, violets, and sometimes a savoury note.
