Gleaming garnet, this vibrant Malbec exhibits aromas of tamarillo, liquorice, and smoky oak. The lively palate surprises with dark fruit, tamarillo jus, and Mediterranean herbs. The finish is refreshing and bright, offering fine structure with balanced acidity and wonderful length.
Winemaker: Anita Ewart-Croy
Harvested after an excellent growing season, the grapes were quickly delivered to the winery and then gently destemmed. Partially crushed Malbec berries were then plunged twice daily in a small open fermenter while complexity enhancing yeast conducted the ferment. Once dry, the skins were pressed from the wine, and the wine was transferred to American and French barriques for malolactic fermentation. After 15 months of maturation in the barrel, the wine was gently fined with fresh egg whites before being filtered and bottled.
