2016 Malbec

Sourced from two blocks of Malbec, one planted in 1989 the other in 1971, fermented in small open vats and hand plunged before pressing and maturation in French oak hogshead for 15 months.

Vintage:
A dry Winter and fleeting Spring was followed by a warm growing season with welcome rainfall in December and January leading to full, healthy canopies enabling excellent yields and great flavour development.

Colour:
Vibrant deep ruby with purple hues.

Palate:
Blueberry flavours continue on the juicy, medium bodied palate with a bright acidity that carries the savoury, chewy tannins to a complex finish.

Cellaring:
Ready to enjoy now, although will gain complexity over the next five to eight years with careful cellaring.

Alcohol:
14.5%
