Caladoc is a dark-skinned wine grape variety that was first produced in 1958 by crossing Malbec with Grenache. It is characterized by its dark red color, medium-to-high tannins and medium-to-full body. The grape was originally intended to have similar characteristics to Grenache but with less susceptibility to coulure, a poor fruit-set condition. Despite being a relatively new grape variety, Caladoc is not sanctioned in any of France's Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) and typically only used in Vin de Pays/Indication Géographique Protégée (IGP) blends of the Languedoc and Provence regions. Caladoc is also grown in Estremadura, Portugal and Mendoza, Argentina, where it is typically used in blended wines. The grape offers plenty of color and flavors of wild berries, balsamic, and eucalyptus.
