Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Malbec is known for its intense, dark fuchsia shades. An earthy and spicy wine with green acidity and notes of red plum, raspberry, black currant, cherry, eucalyptus, black tea, nutmeg, date, and rose on the nose. A burst of juicy black cherry paired with raspberry, date, dill, saffron, and blueberry on the palate.
Vineyard Notes
2021 had a long autumn season with sporadic precipitation events that both helped yet hindered picking dates. This vintage was famously smokey and we mitigated these effects naturally. This was a challenging vintage due to a smaller crop, but smaller berries resulted in intense tannins.
Production Notes
After the Malbec was picked, pump-overs were done twice a day for 30 minutes under dry ice with one delestage. The ferment was kept at 30 degrees Celsius post-fermentation to build tannin structure and colour. The free-run juice was drained directly into barrels, mainly spicy Siruge toast barrels, and the pressed wine was put into neutral puncheons. The wine was aged for 16 months with one racking in July into more neutral barrels. The 140 cases produced are a selection of eight of our finest Malbec barrels.
