ANCHOR: Looking for a versatile wine that goes with just about any meal? No matter how daring the cuisine, we have the perfect pairing suggestion for you. Brian Osuch has the details. (:60)
SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. In a recent survey of culinary professionals, more than half surveyed agree the wine varietal, Malbec, pairs with many types of foods. Alamos Wines', Jimena Turner, says this versatility has quite a bit to do with where the grapes are grown.
CUT: (Turner) The high elevation growing conditions of the Alamos vineyards in Mendoza, Argentina help make Malbec a highly versatile wine for food pairing. The grapes used in Alamos Malbec are grown at the foothills of the Andes Mountains where intense sunlight and cool evening temperatures produce grapes with bold layers of flavor and excellent natural acidity.
SCRIPT: Just how versatile is Malbec? Turner says there's one way to find out.
CUT: (Turner) Use Alamos' Daring Pairings recipe scale to pair a delicious recipe – ranging from "Mildly Daring" to "Wildly Daring" – with our smooth and dark Malbec, which is also America's most preferred Malbec.
