The majority of this wine, came from. a single vineyard in the Wallcliffe sub-region of Margaret River. Malbec is usually blended into Cabernet blends in Margaret River, but the exceptional quality in 2019, and low crops, have produced a wine of great intensity, in its own right. Harvested in April 2019, near the completion of the harvest.
The Malbec was crushed and fermented over 14 days , prior to pressing to French oak, to undergo malolactic fermentation and maturation for 15 months, prior to filtration and bottling.
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.
