WINEMAKER’S NOTES

Our 2018 Malbec is our take on an alternative approach to red wine that is fresh, lively and meant to drink as an assertive young red that delivers at all levels.

TASTING NOTES

COLOUR: Deep purple red with a dark cherry core

AROMA: Lifted and fresh with fresh primary fruit but complex spicy perfumes

PALATE: Medium bodied, with fine layers of fresh tannins and ripe and bright aromatic Malbec fruit. Spicy flavours with some depth that challenge and complement our Taphouse offerings.

FOOD MATCH: Char grilled meats.

CELLARING: Drink Now.

TECHNICAL NOTES

REGION: Margaret River

VINTAGE NOTES: Another very good year in Margaret River, producing red wines that are soft fleshy and expressive

COMPOSITION: 90 % Malbec, 10% Shiraz

WINEMAKING: We employed small batch winemaking, selecting multiple parcels that were fermented separated and cap plunged twice daily. After gentle pressing the wine was transferred to stainless steel for malolactic fermentation. The wine has minimal maturation so to preserve the fresh primary fruit characters and tannins.

ALCOHOL: 14.0%
