It’s the start of the week and a little motivation is needed. So I’ve added a new feature to The Wine Student: Malbec Mondays. It’s my way to help you ease back into that work week.
For this inaugural post, I chose a 2013 Elqui Wines Malbec blend. While Argentina is most noted for its beautiful Malbec, the Elqui Valley in Chile produces wonderful offerings that are fruit forward, earthy, while retaining a pleasing silky mouthfeel. With 52% Syrah, and 37% Carménère and 11% Malbec this wine is a multi-faceted intro to some intriguing Chilean wine. It pairs well with sweet, spicy and barbeque dishes. Not a bad way to begin a week, eh?
So you may not be stoked by having to be back to work. That’s ok. The real fun can begin when you sign out for the day, get home and slip into something more comfortable.
And after a few sips, you’ll be glad it’s just another Malbec Monday. 😉
