Benguela Cove Malbec 2017
Imagine sinking your nose into a bouquet of freshly cut red roses. This Malbec sticks its neck out with confidence, displaying vivid aromas of plum, liquorice and cherries. The fruit is caressed with a cool, spicy note that adds freshness. Tightly knit tannins and an electric purple hue are indicative of youth and longevity.

Ageing
Cellar Grapes were handpicked at optimal potential with selected bunch and berry sorting in the cellar. Partially whole bunch fermented to retain freshness and texture; the four day cold soak encouraged maximum fruit and colour extraction. The juice was inoculated, followed by gentle punch downs twice a day. After alcoholic fermentation, it was pressed, settled and transferred to barrel for malolactic fermentation.
Maturation: 18 months, 30% new French oak barrels | Production: 11 barrels
Harvest Grapes were handpicked.

Block: 3.5 hectares, dryland
Clones: 777, 115 - all grapes are estate grown.
