Similar floral & herbal notes combine with black cherry fruit on the palate, in a dry, savoury, medium bodied style that is a great match for venison, duck, game birds or cheese, or just try on it’s own for something different.
- Winemaking Notes
This Blue Pyrenees Exclusive Series Malbec 2018 is a unique regional version of one of the lesser known red grapes of Bordeaux, where Malbec has long been a blender, 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 also discovered it can produce wonderful varietal wines on its own. Below average yields in a warm year characterised the 2017/2018 growing season in the Pyrenees, but the early 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 seven days before pressing & maturing in old French oak barriques for 12 months completed the wine.
