Earthy notes with fruits of the forest ripeness.
Blackberry, mulberry and dark plum, with milk chocolate oak, with firm but integrated tannins, along with earthy, savoury notes and a long, ripe juiciness on the finish.
Our Malbec is grown only on one of our vineyards, in the Osmington locality of Margaret River, which is a bit inland and to the north-west of Margaret River township. Half
of the block is mature and spur pruned, planted in 1999, while the other half is very young, planted in 2018, cane pruned and not yet productive. The area is late ripening with cool nights, even in the summer months, that preserve bright crunchy fruit aromas.
This Malbec was harvested in March 2020 after an early growing season with near perfect ripening conditions. The fruit appeared
slighter riper and a bit more savoury than it had in 2019.
The Malbec was gently destemmed then fermented on skins over 14
days, prior to pressing to French oak, to undergo malolactic
fermentation and maturation for 12 months. The batch is lightly
filtered before bottling.
Drink now, or cellar up to 10 years.
