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 for 27 months.
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.
