100% Malbec from Les Collines Vineyard

Malbec is originally from Cahors, France and the great grape of Argentina.  Cahors produces an herbal, lean and old world style of Malbec, while high elevation, Argentine Malbec has an opulent texture.  Our goal is to produce a riper version of Cahors.  A wine with savory, food friendly notes yet has richness and is a pleasure to drink.

Tasting notes

A reddish purple hue leads to aromas of savory and dried spices, blackberry, violets, peppercorn, and earth.  The taste of the Malbec has a fresh, seamless and taut texture.  The long finish features a beautiful ballet of blackberries, umami, and earth.  

Production notes

1.8 tons of Malbec was hand harvested on September 21st.  The grapes were hands orted and destemmed, and fermented by yeasts native to Les Collines.  The fermentation was punched down twice a day until pressing.  Only the free run wnie was retained to create this amazing single vineyard Malbec.  The Malbec was aged in French Oak barrels (33% new) for 22 months prior to bottling in July 2017.
