2017 Mounts Estate Malbec
This wine combines power with richness. Aromas of black plum, pencil lead shavings, and floral incense meld beautifully with the flavors of fresh blackberry, garrigue, and black fruit compote. Boldly structured with gripping tannins, this wine will benefit from cellaring.
Whole berry destemming, 4 - 5 day cold soak, punchdowns 3 times per day. Native yeast fermentation in small open top, one ton fermenters. Total skin contact 24 days. Barrel aged 20 months in 60% new French oak.
