2019 Singlefile Great Southern Malbec
VINEYARD & WINEMAKING
The fruit was picked and sorted on the 12th April 2019. It was cold soaked in small fermenters for five 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 percent of the wine was matured in new Bordeaux oak barriques. The balance went to one-year old (40%) and two-year-old (40%) Bordeaux barriques for ten months maturation before final preparation of bottling in February 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.
