Winemaking Notes

The Blue Pyrenees Exclusive Release Malbec 2017 is a unique regional version of one of the lesser known red grapes of Bordeaux. Malbec has long been a blender in Bordeaux but is the main red grape behind the wines of Cahors & has become the popular red grape of choice for Argentinian red wines. Now Australians have discovered it can produce wonderful varietal wines on its own. A good crop in a cool year characterised the 2016/2017 growing season in the Pyrenees. This unique season allowed Malbec to show off its intense varietal notes at only 13.0 Beaume sugar level. Hand harvesting, then fermentation in two tonne open fermenters for 7 days before pressing & maturing in old French oak barriques for 12 months completed the wine.
