An Argentinian Red Blend Goes Well with a Savoury French Stew

We enjoyed another Supercook favourite tonight – Ragoût de Bœuf aux Pois Chiches.  This is a lovely Beef Stew with Chick Peas in a tomato-based sauce.  It is not as strongly-flavoured as some beef stews and we looked for a wine that would not overwhelm the meal.  We opened a bottle of Alambrado Malbec Tempranillo 2009, a medium-bodied Argentinian red from the Sunday Times Wine Club.

The wine displayed redcurrants, black fruits, smoothness with a spicy edge and was not too intense.  It complemented well this savoury but not overly rich stew.
