World Malbec Day 2018
Wednesday 11th April 6.30pm
8 wines | 7 dishes | $139pp
This year we’re celebrating World Malbec Day with a little friendly rivalry between the origin countries of this popular grape.
We’ve invited two of Australia's leading suppliers of the varietal - Tom Egan of JED merchants - specialising in Argentinian produced Malbec, and Gavin Lennard of Vintage and Vine Importers - specialising in French produced Malbec of the Cahors appellation.
In a blind tasting, we will compare the grape grown in the high altitudes of Argentina to grapes produced by the centuries old production methods of the French appellation.
