Wine of the Weekend

Bodega Toro Centenario Malbec

Happy New Year! In our first Wine of the Weekend for 2023, we (like many others), are focusing on good values after a few holiday splurges. The challenge with looking for value while wine shopping is there are lots of options, but who’s to know which are worth it and which are duds? US, that’s who! We do a lot of tasting so you don’t have to, and right now 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 on its own for its easy drinking nature.

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 Centenario is made by a large co-op comprising 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!

AvailabilityBodega Toro Centenario Malbec is available in the Argentina section of your local LCBO and for online ordering now. It’s $1.00 off until January 29, so you have time to taste for yourself, then stock up!
