Grape Spy: Jean Smullen

2021 DADA White Malbec €12.99

2019 Trapiche Malbec €13

Sunday World

IN Argentina they are now using Malbec to make both a red and a white wine? So why not give both versions a try.

2021 DADA White Malbec €12.99

You can make white wine from red grapes, but you can’t make red wine from white grapes. The colour comes from the skin of the grape, so they crush the red grapes and then ferment the juice without contact with the grape skin. This has aromas of peach, but taste it and you find red apple flavours with a lively acidity.

Look out for it on offer in Tesco (with Clubcard) for €9.00. Available in Dunnes, SuperValu, Gala, Fine Wines, Next Door and Number 21. Why not serve this with Spaghetti Bolognese.

2019 Trapiche Malbec €13

2019 Trapiche Malbec €13

Trapiche began in 1883 in a small vineyard called el Trapiche in Godoy Cruz, Mendoza. Today they are one of Argentina’s biggest wineries. Their Malbec is rich and intense with lots of dark berry fruit flavours and soft tannin.

Enjoy this with a burger topped with blue cheese or chicken cooked in a creamy mushroom sauce. Available from Dunnes & SuperValu, look out for it on promotion in the run up to Christmas.
