Weekly Wine Quiz: Before Malbec Domination

Vinted on March 22, 2013 binned in wine quiz

Welcome to the Weekly Wine Quiz!

This week, we are continuing a run of questions about Argentine wine (I’ve recently returned from a two week jaunt down there to judge in the 2013 Argentina Wine Awards), all originally appearing in the newsletter The Juice. And of course, we cannot really talk about Argentine wine without at some point getting into it with this grape…

Mendoza is well known for Malbec, but what grape varieties comprised the dominant plantings before the expansion of Malbec?

A.  Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot
B.  Sauvignon Blanc and Ugni Blanc
C.  Tempranillo and Grenache
D.  Cereza and Criolla Grande

Cheers – and good luck!
