COLOUR  Inky plum with purple hue.

NOSE  Ripe blueberries, black plums, violets.

PALATE  Dark berry, spiced dark chocolate, fine structural tannins, long finish.

WINEMAKING  Fruit was harvested when flavour, tannin and acid were all in balance. Fruit was fermented before being pressed off into tank, settled then transferred to French oak barrels. Careful barrel selection brought together rich fruit, firm tannins and a tight acidity to come together beautifully, producing a Malbec of great structural integrity and one that will reward careful cellaring.

VINTAGE NOTES  2019 was a long, cool vintage. It started off with a cooler than average spring and summer and this followed through vintage. Canopy management and attention to detail were key to getting fruit ripe and avoiding disease. Yields were low across the board.
