Weekday wine - 2021 Funckenhausen Malbec Blend

2021 Funckenhausen Malbec Blend

Mendoza, Argentina

Regular price: $20 per bottle

Sale price: $16 per bottle

Malbec made its way from France to Argentina in the middle of the 19th century but it's now nearly 200-year existence there has shaped the wines into a very distinctly non-French style. Rich, round and lush, Argentina Malbecs are often criticized as tasting like ‘good red wine from anywhere’, meaning that they don’t possess a signature style. But what if their signature style is simply rich, round and lush? Is that a bad thing?

This blend of Malbec, Syrah and Bonarda is produced by a small family winery seeking to honor their German heritage. Predictably rich, round and lush, it’s not simply one-dimensional however as the blend offers up floral notes to vie with the blackberry flavors. Bottled in a unique 1.0-liter bottle, “because to share you need more than 750ml" (which is aptly printed on the front of each bottle) it's a crowd pleaser in more ways than one. (PW)
