100% Malbec from Millton's biodynamically farmed vineyards in Manutuke, Gisborne. Hand harvested, wild fermented in a large French oak cuve for 28 days, then pressed into large format French oak demi muids.
Stylistically this is a dark fruited, mid bodied, light tannined red. Its colour is dark and inky as you might expect of Malbec but the soft, easy-going tannins leave you reaching for another glass. As with it being matured in large format (600L), old French oak the texture of oak is present, but not the taste. It's a cosy, juicy red that's perfect for the season ahead.
We are now offering our packaging-free natural wines for online delivery.
We work closely with wineries up and down the country to bring you organic, natural wines straight from the winery to our store, and offer them to you on tap, packaging free.
We fill to order, and fill into sturdy, heavy-duty 750ml swing top bottles that you can later reuse. The wines are held under nitrogen and the bottles are pre-gassed before filling to prevent oxidation. We suggest opening the wine within 2-3 weeks of purchasing it and consuming the wine within 1-2 days of opening.
Once you've finished with the bottle pop back to either one of our stores (442 K' Road, Auckland or 177 Cuba Street, Wellington) for a refill, or use the bottles for other drinks, ferments, sauces, etc!
