Malbec 1 Field Malbec Studio

Malbec is an early ripening black wine grape from France. It has a medium growing season with high yield potential. Vitis vinifera, the selected clone for data analysis was Malbec BX1056, IC69.8125. Grown for commercial wine production in Australia. The prime name of this variety is Cot. Malbec is a vigorous variety but with moderate yields in cooler areas it makes a balanced wine of good colour which has a less intense varietal aroma and is softer than Cabernet wines. When blended with other Bordeaux varieties the wines produced mature early and are less suited to very long storage.
