This is a great value Malbec blend from Chile that delivers lush, full ripe fruit aromas and exuberant flavours. There's plums, blackberry and black pepper on a chunky yet soft palate with smoky spice and gentle tannins. Easy drinking, uncomplicated wine that is ideal for socialising.
Try this with BBQ dishes.
The Malbec and Shiraz grapes are harvested by machine in the cool of the evening. After de-stemming and crushing the juice is cooled to drop any solids, before fermenting on skins at a warm 25 degrees for around 3 weeks with regular spraying over and immersion of the skin cap to extract more tannins, colour and phenolic flavours. After fermentation the wine is racked several times into tanks to clear the lees with a final light filtration prior to bottling. No oak is used to maximise the ripe red and black fruit characters.
