2021 Singlefile Great Southern Malbec
VINEYARD & WINEMAKING
This 2021 Great Southern Malbec fruit was picked and sorted on 1st April 2021. It was cold soaked in small fermenters for two 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 flavour profile of malbec. Twenty five percent of the wine was matured in new Bordeaux oak barriques. The balance went to one- and two-year old Bordeaux barriques for seven months maturation before final preparation for bottling in December 2021.
This wine displays bright and lifted perfumed aromas of plum, dark berries, chocolate and spicy oak support. The wine is effortlessly mouth filling with a lovely soft and juicy red fruit flavour profile balanced with natural acidity and gentle fine-grained tannins which provide structure to a long finish.
