The Oddbins Take

We could say of Malbec grown in France; "the prodigal son returns!" However, we only recently learnt that 'prodigal,' isn't a compliment, adding new context to our relationship with our fathers! There’s also no reason Malbec should be male so instead of using that tired old cliché, we’ll use the metaphor of Arya from Game of Thrones returning to Westeros!

Originally, Arya struggled in here home nation, eventually leaving out of fear for her very existence. While few took her chances abroad very seriously, she flourished! Honing her skills, developing her personal brand and selling some cockles… (this metaphor is falling down like that big ice wall).

Malbec was driven out of France by Phylloxera, only to become one of the worlds most popular grapes when grown in Argentina. Now Malbec is back in France, with lovely floral and dark fruit aromas, fine tannins, a brooding intensity and a power that is sure to teach those treacherous Frays a hard old lesson! See, perfect metaphor!

    £66.75

    We heard you! And we understand it's not that easy. We also understand that the last thing you want to be doing after a long day of responsible consumption choices, is to wander around a shop trying to fathom which wines haven't been fined using egg-white (yes, that's a thing).

    Which is why we've done the hard work for you. We've selected some of our favourite vegan-friendly red and white wines for you to try, so you can prove to any sceptical friends that being vegan doesn't mean you have to miss out on the good stuff.
