Malbec 2015 Limited Release

Tasting Notes

Medium ruby purple with ruby hue.  A fruit driven nose indicative of the warm vintage with blackcurrat, spice and rich blood plum.  Medium bodied and full flavoured. This vintage is packed with the unique Malbec varietal characters of soft and supple fruits such as blueberry and blackberry, ending with a floral note. The natural acidity adds freshness and balance while the youthful tannins add a textural finish to the wine.

Winemaking

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.

Cellaring

With its great depth of fruit and supple tannins, our 2015 Limited Release Malbec is eminently drinkable in its youth. However our history with this unique varietal suggests up to tens 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
