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.
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.
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.
