Malbec Pairing Notes
Description: Malbec can range from very robust, spicy, and tannic to smooth, easier drinking styles. This one falls into the second category, still rich and quite full bodied, but with a smooth, mellow texture. It has aromas and flavors of ripe blackberry, plum, and cherry, with subtle spicy and earthy notes.
Pairing: When serving a dish that has both mild and rich flavours (like this fondue) you need a medium bodied wine that can stand up to the stronger flavours while not overpowering the milder ones. The sauces served with this fondue are important, because they help boost the flavour of the mild pork so it's not overpowered by the wine. The sweet, fruity flavours complement the sweetness in the red pepper sauce, and the rosemary-garlic butter sauce brings out the earthiness of the wine.
Wine Suggestion: Marcus James Malbec (Mendoza, Argentina)
