  1. Grapes: Malbec

At WineOnline.ca we travel the world to ensure we can offer our clients the best imported wine under $25 to be found anywhere. There are all sorts of types of imported wines under $25. To name some we have, dry imported wine, sweet imported wine, full bodied imported wine, medium bodied imported wine, light imported wine, tannic imported wine and structured imported wine.

When it comes to imported wine, people’s preferences can be all over the map. Some people choose to take the safe road when it comes to drinking imported wine. We do not advocate this approach. Different imported wine is going to be appropriate for different times of the day/night/evening etc. The food you are eating is going to affect the taste of your imported wine and the taste of your imported wine is going to change the flavour of your food. The trick is to find the best imported wine takes some experimentation. Don’t just go with the tried and true as you are missing out. Pinot Noir with your fish can be delectable. Nebbiolo with lamb is divine. How could you not love a little Chianti, (Sangiovese), with your eggplant Parmesan? We encourage experimentation. We consider it our job, to help you improve your wine life.

There is a litany of words used to describe imported wine types. There are 10’s of thousands of imported wines produced all over the world. There are 1000's of different red grape varietals. Italy, on its own, has over 2000 indigenous grape varietals used to produce imported wines of differing style. The most famous grape varietals used in the productions of top imported wines are likely those from Bordeaux which include; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Pinot Noir is another very popular imported wine varietal which is the only red grape they use for imported wine production in Burgundy. In Burgundy, they do not even label the wines with the varietal, but rather the vineyard from which the grapes were grown. A few of the famous ones are Romanee Conti, La Tache, Vosne Romanee, Nuits St Georges, but there are many more good imported wine types. At WineOnline.ca, one of our many, but perhaps our most important, job is to taste as many of these wines as possible, and bring in the best wines in order to make them available to our clients. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it.

One of the more colorful stories about Malbec is that it first appeared in France thanks to the efforts of a Hungarian peasant. While the exact story varies, most experts believe that the grape originated in what is now the northern area of the Burgundy region. Whatever the origins, Malbec is one of the six grapes most commonly used in the production of the popular red Bordeaux wine. The grape is noted for having an unusually thin skin. In order to ripen, it requires greater exposure to direct sunlight and higher levels of heat than some varieties. When combined with other fruits, the result is a wine with a full body and a pleasant taste that tends to linger on the tongue. In recent years, wines have appeared that use the Malbec as the sole fruit. Many experts project that these wines will command more attention in the years to come.
