This vintage shows all the wonderful characters typical of a well-made, ripe Malbec - a beautiful deep purple, fine tannins and an abundance of flavours. The aromatic spectrum of boysenberries, blueberries and earthy notes on the nose leads to a luscious mouthfeel, brimming with dark fruits such as blackberries and prunes. Rich flavours of dried cherries, black olives and allspice with a hint of game meats lead to a long lingering finish. It is showing a wonderfully textured palate structure.
Go southern for a food pairing with a melt in your mouth beef brisket or a burger with mushrooms and a thin slice of local artisan melted blue cheese.
Easily enjoyable upon release, the 2018 Malbec may be cellared for up to 7 years from vintage date.
