2011 Yellow+Blue Malbec
San Juan, Argentina
people like it!
A solid and very tasty Malbec from an organic vineyard that’s shipped in a Tetra Pak. Rock out with your eco friendly wine out. Yellow plus blue equals green. Get it?
These guys are leading the go green winemaking revolution (get it? Yellow+Blue make green) with their brand of organically grown and eco-consciously packaged reds, whites and roses. They're also crazy affordable.
The 2008 Yellow+Blue Malbec is a very drinkable wine. It falls on the lighter side of Malbec but still rocks the dark berry fruit flavors you know and love. All in all, this is some pretty damn good wine.
Before it even hits your glass the first thing you'll notice about this bottle is the lack of, well, a bottle. Packaged in a handy Tetra Pak, this combination of paper board, aluminum and plastic is bound together for a super light, protective and green alternative to glass. The packaging weighs a lot less than regular bottles meaning their carbon footprint is much smaller than most companies. The screw top makes for easy access to what you really want, the wine.
Yellow+Blue rockstar CEO, Matt Cain will be heading up a Crash Course at Saturday's Wine Riot tasting and talking all about eco-friendly wines and their effect on the industry. He'll be unscrewing this and other tasty Earth friendly wines from Yellow+Blue.
Drink liberally with grilled meats, garlic-laden pasta sauce and your Prius driving, carbon-footprint reducing, food co-op shopping hippie friends.
