Click Wine Group is launching High Note, an Argentinean Malbec from the Uco Valley in Mendoza. The wine was created by Peter Click, CEO of Click Wine Group, with the idea that Malbec will be the next "sought-after varietal," according to the company. High Note is available nationwide for the suggested retail price of $12.99.
Dollar sales of Argentinean wine in the U.S. grew 28% in 2007, while Malbec dollar sales were up 87% in the 52 weeks ending May 3, 2008, according to Nielsen.
Recall that Winebow, a New Jersey-based importer, recently bought Click Wine Group for an undisclosed price earlier this summer. Founder Peter Click will remain as president of Click Wine Group and will also become executive vice president of Winebow.
