Malbec Bush Vine Blanc de Noir 2017

R 130.00

A delicate version of Malbec in a lively and fresh style.


Tasting Notes

Made from the only block of bush vine Malbec on the farm. Light Salmon pink in colour with delicate aromas of crushed strawberries, flower petals and underlying white truffles. Finishes with a subtle freshness of pomegranates and a stylish zesty
silkiness.


Winemaker's Notes

Picked by hand from our 0.8ha bushvine Malbec on two days in January and February at different ripeness levels. Whole bunch pressings at incremental pressure levels to slowly extract colour and clean juice which was fermented seperately at 13 - 16°C to obtain lovely vibrant aromas. Extended lees contact for three months after which wine was settled clear and stabilized. Bottled in May 2017.
