With a deep purple color, this Malbec presents aromas of plum, blueberry, blackberry and violet. This wine is dry and full-bodied, rich in flavors and with a long and bright finish.
Estate Vineyard to the west of our tasting room and production facility. Bilateral cordon trained into vertical shoot position also known as “VSP”. Clone 4 (Bordeaux) on 5BB rootstock. Planted in 2014, the vines are young and full of energy. Pruning and shoot thinning were done to keep cluster counts in balance, leaves were pulled on the north side of the vine as the rows oriented east to west. 2017 was the first vintage we harvested fruit from this vineyard.
Grapes were hand-picked (at 26.1 Brix average) in the morning on September 13th, 2021 and gently sorted and transferred to a temperature controlled stainless steel tank for cold soak. Fermentation was managed with regular punch downs or pump overs. Aged in oak barrels (approximately 24% new French & American oak).
