Malbec 2011 Limited Release

Tasting Notes

Red Burgundy with a ruby red hue.  A complex nose of cranberry fruits, italian field herbs and lifted notes of violets.  Medium - light bodied with a bright acid line. Fruits of cranberry, rhubarb and maraschino cherry fill the palate, followed by savoury, earthy characters and ground spice from barrel maturation.

Winemaking

The fruit was fermented on skins in a closed fermenter and then matured in 2 & 3 year old oak puncheons for twelve months prior to bottling.

Cellaring

With its great depth of fruit and supple tannins, our 2011 Limited Release Malbec can be enjoyed whilst as a young wine. However our history with this unique varietal suggests 6-9 years in the cellar will not go unrewarded. The wine is now entering its perfect drinking window. Enjoy with crispy skinned roast duck or roast leg of spring lamb.

"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
