2018 Singlefile Great Southern Malbec
VINEYARD & WINEMAKING
This wine is 100% Great Southern Malbec, the first time Singlefile has produced a single varietal Malbec wine. The fruit was picked and sorted on the 18th April 2018. It was cold soaked in small fermenters for six days before undergoing an extended and gentle maceration allowing for the softening of the tannins. Twenty percent of the wine was matured in new Bordeaux oak barriques. The balance went to one year old (50%) and two year old (50%) Bordeaux barriques for twelve months maturation before blending.
This wine displays bright and lifted aromas of dark berries and spicy oak support. The wine is effortlessly mouth filling with juicy red fruit flavours balanced with acidity and gentle fine grained tannins which lead to a long finish.
