2020 Singlefile Great Southern Malbec
VINEYARD & WINEMAKING
The fruit was picked and sorted on the 12th March 2020. It was cold soaked in small fermenters for three days before undergoing an extended and gentle maceration allowing for the softening of the tannins with the goal of creating a wine with structure and texture along with the natural juicy flavours of malbec. Twenty five percent of the wine was matured in new Bordeaux oak barriques. The balance went to one-year old and two-year-old Bordeaux barriques for seven months maturation before final preparation of bottling in November 2020.
This wine displays bright and lifted aromas of plum, dark berries, chocolate and spicy oak support. The wine is effortlessly mouth filling with juicy red fruit flavours balanced with acidity and gentle fine-grained tannins which provide structure to a long finish.
