  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    De-stemmed to open fermenters, approx. 15% whole berry, for 2 - 3 days pre-ferment maceration. Fermentation peak at 28°C with pump overs up to 4 times daily. Drained & pressed after 9 to 12 days on skins. Settled for 24 hours before racking to oak for MLF.

    Oak Maturation - 12 months new (10%) and seasoned French oak hogsheads and puncheons.

    TASTING NOTES

    Malbec is rarely seen as a varietal wine but here at Bleasdale and in Langhorne Creek it stands on its own two feet and performs well enough to earn its stripes. This wine shows vibrant primary fruit flavours of plums, red berries and pepper spice. Finishing soft and round with velvety smooth tannins.

    Cellaring Potential - Drinking well now until 2023.

    Suggested Food Pairing - Barbecued lamb, beef or pork with a smokey, chilli-based rub.

    Alc/vol - 14.0%
