Co-op Irresistible Fairtrade Organic Malbec 2018 review - WineUncorked: Wine Reviews and Tips

co op

The heavy bottle and the organic/fairtrade credentials make this wine worth a try when it's priced at £7.50. And it delivers. The inky-purple colour reveals aromas of blackcurrant, high-cocoa content dark chocolate and damp wood - add in cherry to that list and you have the flavours. This sharp and dry wine needs a food dish that contains a hearty tomato sauce and black olives.
