Single Vineyard Malbec 2016

R 159.00

SAWi-PlatinumA rich, deep, voluptous Malbec from the Cape Winelands.

SKU: DWE00012 Category: Tags: ,

Tasting Notes

Intense garnet to dark purple in colour with vibrant aromas of violets, cocoa and black pepper. The palete shows richness and roundness with flavours of blakberries and plum.


Winemaker's Notes

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. 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.
