More info

Intense dark purple with black cherry and eucalyptus to the fore, with elements of fresh mint, fynbos and a touch of sandal wood. The palate shows freshness and youth with juicy fruit, good structure and soft, well integrated tannins.

Malbec ripens quite early yielding superior quality fruit with good analysis. The grapes were hand picked and whole bunch sorted over three days, extracting colour and aromas early. A slow fermentation to start, as well as extended time on the skins, further enhanced wine quality. The grapes were pressed at -2° Balling and matured in 50% new French oak barrels for 14 months.

Serve with roast leg of lamb, also great with matured cheese and preserves.
