This Weekend's Pick

Wine of the Weekend

Bodega Toro Centenario Malbec

Value is one of the buzz words in January, especially after holiday bills arrive. The challenge with looking for value when wine shopping is that there are lots of options, making for too much trial and error to take on yourself. That’s why we’re here! We tirelessly taste so all you need to do is pick the diamonds from the rough. This January we’re stocking up on Bodegas Toro Centenario Malbec, a great value already, and even better when we’re saving $1.00 per bottle!

Tasting Notes: Bodega Toro Malbec sports a juicy cherry and dark fruit profile with lingering, leathery spice notes, while soft, polished tannins carry you through the long, fruity finish.

Enjoy With: Roasted or grilled red meats, pizza or pasta dishes, Edam or Gouda cheese, or simply on its own.

Style: A medium-bodied, fruity red wine.

Terroir/Region: Mendoza is the modern home of the Malbec grape. A warm, windy region, Mendoza is kept dry by the Andes mountains which block rains coming from the Pacific Ocean. Malbec vineyards here are drenched in sunshine and kept relatively pest-free by the winds and dry climate. In short, it’s winemaking paradise.

Producer: Bodega Toro is made by a co-op comprised of over 5000 growers. By combining their efforts, they can share knowledge and resources as well as their harvests. This practice encourages collaboration and innovation at every level, pushing the quality of the wines forward from the vineyard to the bottle and benefiting, well… us!

Availability: Bodega Toro Centenario Malbec is available in the Argentina section of your local LCBO and for online ordering now. It’s only $1.00 off until January 30th, so be sure to grab your bottle soon!
