Tasting Notes

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

Blend Information

100% Malbec

Food Suggestions

Serve with roast leg of lamb, also great with matured cheese and preserves. Chef's Special: Springbok fillet cooked in a Malbec reduction.

About The Harvest

Malbec ripens quite early yielding superior quality fruit with good analysis. The grapes were hand picked and whole bunch sorted over a week, extracting colour and aromas early.

In The Cellar

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 40% new French oak barrels for 12 months.
