Wine review – Tradicion Mendoza Malbec

Back to Blog

An outstanding malbec from Susana Balbo, the pioneering Argentinian winemaker, Tradicion is an expressive and vibrant wine boasting notes of spice and dark berries. For those seeking a full-bodied wine, this Mendoza Malbec makes a perfect pairing with mature cheeses and dishes featuring grilled red meats with a spicy rub. However, for those searching for a satisfying drinking wine to enjoy with friends, this versatile label is equally appropriate. It is also suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.

It is made with grapes grown in the unique sub region of Argentina’s Uco Valley, known as Los Chacayes. Here, the vine fruit grows at high altitude and ripens, delivering a perfectly balanced wine red with mineral freshness.

While available for many years at Marks & Spencer, this year the respected retailer has added Tradicion to its coveted M&S Collection. As a result, it now sports the classic navy and gold label associated with the sub-brand.

Like other Malbecs, it is best served slightly chilled and drank from a traditional wine glass. These glasses are ideal for full-bodied reds which have high alcohol and spicy notes like Tradicion. The smaller opening of the glass results in the spicy notes softening as flavours reach the tongue at a more progressive rate.

Engraved wine glasses make great gifts for oenophiles and other wine afficionados, and at H. Cooper Glass Engravers, you’ll find products of the highest quality. Get in touch today and let our in-house team of experts personalise your present.
