2013 Secret de Vin Manent Malbec, Colchagua, Chile

410It’s Burns Night tonight, and with that the challenge of matching a drink with haggis is at the forefront our first contributor’s mind.

“Bold must be the wine that dares to stand up to haggis,” writes the Sunday Times‘s Damien Barr. “Go red, go bloody: Rioja, Malbec and Chianti.”

For a specific wine, Barr recommends “this big blend” that can “stand up to the spicy, meaty challenge”.

“At least 85% Malbec, the remaining varieties are secret – I detect spicy Mourvedre and rich Syrah. Punchy but with a fine finish and moreish black fruit.”

Oddbins, £11.25
