Malbec was always the underdog until it found a home in Argentina (becoming popular from the late 1990s onwards) and, more recently, in Australia. In fact, in French, the name of this thin-skinned, dark-purple grape is derived from the term mal bouche, meaning' bad mouth', which suggests what the old French winemakers thought of it. For a long time in Australia, malbec was considered a backup grape, often mixed with Shiraz or cabernet sauvignon or blended in table wine with no mention on the label. Yet times have changed, and the crop's popularity as a stand-alone varietal is increasing rapidly. Compared to Argentinian varieties, Australian malbec – grown at a lower altitude – tends to taste less linear and have a bolder mid-palate. In contrast, premium Australian versions tend to be richer and more tannic. Expect aromatic and violet notes plus soft tannins on the finish due to the milder climate.

Johnny Q Malbec is a powerful dark red, full-bodied wine packed with fruit. Q Malbec has notes of dark plums, dark cherries, violet and dark chocolate.
