West Brook Waimauku Malbec 2016

Fragrant floral notes greet on the nose, combining with lifted red summer berry fruits, heather, dark spices and chocolate on the palate. The earthy sensation of tannins reflect the Waimauku dry grown clay soil origins with delicate texture and vibrance. Layered fruitcake richness, leather, tamarillo and vanillin oak combine for a sustained finish.

Winemakers Production Notes:                                                                  

Handpicked Malbec from our dry grown Waimauku clay soils was destemmed and crushed to open fermenter for a brief cold soak before inoculation. Handplunged through ferment. The wine was pressed to tank for settling, then to barrel for maturation. No fining and sterile filtration before bottling.
