Malbec 2016 Limited Release

Intense mulberry & plum fruit characters with hints of violet & rhubarb

$28.00 CELLAR CLUB
$25.20

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Medium ruby purple with ruby hue. Lift of spicy red fruits with hints of anise and blackberry with just a touch of forest floor and some vanillan creamy notes sneaking in from oak.

Wine Making

Our Malbec was able to achieve full ripeness on the vine, uninhibited by rain or disease, so our resultant wine is full bodied for the style with plenty of tannin and flavor to balance. Fermentation in stainless with aging in seasoned oak.

Cellaring

Our 2016 Malbec is vibrant and fresh and is eminently drinkable in its youth. However our history with this unique varietal suggests up to ten years in the cellar will not go unrewarded. Enjoy with crispy skinned roast duck or BBQ lamb cutlets.

Palate:

The palate opens with rich blackberry fruit and notes of spice lifting the full fruit on the palate, with some more meaty and savoury notes behind. The chalky tannin profile sits in check alongside the fruit in this very youthful Malbec.
