Malbec 2014 Limited ReleaseSOLD OUT
Ruby red with crimson hues. A fruit driven nose indicative of the warm vintage with blackberry, plum, mulberry and hints of rhubarb and violets. Medium-light bodied but full flavoured. This vintage is packed with the unique Malbec varietal characters of mulberry, rhubarb and maraschino cherry fruit. The natural acidity adds freshness and balance while the fine tannins add a savoury and textural finish to the wine.
The fruit was chilled at crushing to allow 2-3 days cold maceration before fermentation. Pump overs were conducted twice daily for 8 days before pressing to 2 & 3 year old puncheons. The wine was matured in oak for 12 months prior to bottling.
With its great depth of fruit and supple tannins, our 2014 Limited Release Malbec is eminently drinkable in its youth. However our history with this unique varietal suggests 8-10 years in the cellar will not go unrewarded. Enjoy with crispy skinned roast duck or BBQ lamb cutlets.
"Malbec is a variety which has been grown continuously by the Campbell family for over 100 years. It consistently produces well-rounded, full flavoured and balanced wines. This wine in continuing proof of the quality and potential of malbec in the Rutherglen region." - Colin Campbell
