Castel Château Malbec Bordeaux Red Wine 750 ml

Château Malbec is delightful property dating back to 1860 and located in the village of Sainte-Eulalie, just outside Bordeaux. It was acquired by the Castel family in 1991. From their mainly South facing position, the vines enjoy optimal sun exposure. Château Malbec boasts a wide variety of terroirs and varietals, lending its wines their delicate balance, boldness and sophistication. The property’s archetypal Bordeaux blend is testament to the region’s winemaking tradition. Château Malbec is as rich as its diverse, eclectic Bordeaux terroir. Stunningly complex, Malbec is intensely fruity on the nose, with strong hints of black cherry and blackberry. The Merlot that thrives on the property’s clay soils brings balance and boldness. The Cabernet Sauvignon, planted on gravelly slopes, brings a remarkable tannic structure. Cabernet Franc and Malbec complete the blend, adding freshness and musky hints. This complex, sophisticated red is underpinned by subtle barrel-aging. As part of a long-standing commitment to stainable winegrowing, Château Malbec obtained the Terra Vitis certification in 2012
