Winexpert Limited Edition Malbec Bonarda Syrah is an amazing blend from Argentina. Malbec leads the way providing structure and black fruit. Bonarda builds on juicy fruit flavours and softens tannin, while Syrah lends savoury spice character. This exciting blend shows black cherry and raspberry aromas infused with subtle clove spice, leading to an expressive palate of bright red fruit and ripe dark berry, backed by soft spice, vanilla and dark chocolate notes. Structured and zesty, with firm tannin and food-friendly acidity.
This wine’s signature food pairing is gourmet blue burger but it’s also a great match for pulled pork tacos, rib eye steak with chimichurri sauce, or BBQ chicken pizza. Available

Bonarda (also known as Charbono) originated in France but is now mostly planted in California and Argentina. Bondarda thrives in Argentine where it grows alongside Malbec- the grape that Argentina is famous for. Not coincidentally Bonarda blends perfectly with Malbec! Like Malbec- Bonarda produces fruity, smooth red wines with flavours of plum, cherry cardamom and fig. Bonarda has a dry finish with medium, soft tannins.
Native to the Bordeaux region of France, Malbec is one of the 6 original grapes that go into the classic Bordeaux blend. It has since become Argentina’s signature wine and is now being found in other regions of the world. Malbec wines are rich, luscious and pair fabulously with beef.
Due to the popularity of Australian wines this grape is now probably better known to most wine drinkers as Shiraz, however in France (its original home) and most growing regions of the world it is still known as Syrah. While largely a blending grape in the Rhone region wines of France, most other growing regions feature Shiraz on its own. Look for nice berry flavours with a lively spiciness- very enjoyable.
Sitting at the foot of the Andes and an average of 900 metres above sea level, Mendoza boasts some of the highest vineyards in the world. Altitude is key to Mendoza’s quality; the hot, semi-arid climate gives the grapes the sun and heat they need to fully ripen, while the cool mountain nights drastically slow ripening thereby preserving acidity. The dry, rocky mountain soils force the vines to work harder for nutrients, producing smaller, more concentrated grapes.
Dry wines like Cabernet and Pinot Grigio have no perceptible amount of sweetness to the drinker and will often be detected as having a drying character in the mouth.
The big wines that can stand on their own. Often premium wines with higher tannins, alcohol levels and oaking levels as they all factor in a bigger tasting wine.
Big reds like Cabernet and ultra premium wines will have higher levels of oak as it adds to the complexity and finish that wine drinkers expect.
