Argentine vs Chilean Malbec (Episode 152)

In this episode, we compare an Argentine vs a Chilean Malbec wine.

In the first part of this video, we taste the Argentine Malbec which we are pleasantly surprised with the taste of this Malbec. Cherry and leather were the first two tastes John and John experienced. It had everything you would expect from a Malbec.

This Malbec is available from Aldi at £7.99 this wine is very good value.

The next Malbec wine we tasted is also available from Aldi.

On the nose, black cherry, but whilst you immediately get a full on taste that quickly disappears.

In John M’s view, it lacked complexity.

Asda Moneda Chilean Merlot (Episode 147)

In this episode, we taste a Chilean Merlot available from Asda at £5.00 per bottle.

This wine is really fruity, low on tannin – really tasty!

The only downside with this wine is that it does not have much length, but for this price, there is no way one can complain!

BeefSteak Club Shiraz (Episode143)

In this episode, we taste a wine John L thought he had enjoyed at a restaurant a few weeks before recording this episode. John L wanted to see how much different the wine tasted outside the context of a convivial Sunday Lunch with Friends in the cold light of the day (or perhaps cold light of the cellar would be more appropriate)

Little did he know at the time of recording that the wine was bound to taste different as the wine he had tasted at the restaurant was a Malbec and the wine he and John were tasting in the cellar was a Shiraz?

Can you spot the confused look on his face as he begins to taste it?

On the nose, the small was one of a herbaceous smell rather than a fruity taste.

The taste too, had little fruit flavour, with the taste being once again more herbal.

A really nice taste, very easy to drink which at 14.5% alcohol content could be slightly dangerous!

John M could detect mint and whilst other flavours were present we were unable to identify them.

Finco Los Altepes Argentine Malbec (Episode 132 Part 4)

This part of the episode was shot a few weeks after we tasted the wines in parts 1, 2 and three. Whilst the first three in this episode were very nice they did not hit our high expectations for Argentine Malbec.so we decided to splash out a little more than normal and purchased this £27 bottle of Argentine Malbec to see if the price made a difference.

Take a look at the video to find out what we thought of it.

Trivento Argentina Mendoza Malbec (Episode 132 Part 3)

In this final part of our episode on tasting Argentine Malbec, we taste a bottle of Trivento Malbec again from the Mendoza region which is available from Tescos priced at £8.00.

The nose again smells more like a Pinot Noir than a Malbec, on the taste however the flavour is more Malbec with a red cherry order. We consider the tannins to be a little too heavy and therefore slightly unbalanced.

Asda Argentine Mendoza Malbec (Episode 132 Part 2)

In the 2nd part of this episode, we taste our 2nd malbec from Argentina.

This bottle is from Asda’s extra special range, priced at £6.00 and again from the Mendoza region of Argentina.

On the nose, the wine had a very light aroma and John M thought it resembled a Pinot Noir aroma rather than a Malbec.

The taste was, however, was far better, although a lot lighter in taste, than the Malbec tasted in part 1 of this episode.

John M did not think the taste is one you would normally expect from a Malbec.
