Malbec 2018 Limited Release

Intense mulberry and plum characters with hints of violet.

$28.00 CELLAR CLUB
$25.20

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Vibrant mid red. The spice and lift is evident on the nose, with the acidity ever-present.

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 2018 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.

The Grapes: All from our Silverburn vineyard in Rutherglen.
Date Tasted: November 2019
Alcohol: 13.5%

Palate:

Medium bodied, this is a good example of pure Malbec fruit; bramble berries, rhubarb and fine tannin finish. There is also a lovely hint of wood behind the fruit, which helps balance this young wine.
