2018 ‘Black Jack’ Malbec

95 points, Gold Medal: James Halliday

Composition
100% Malbec

Tasting Note
Dark inky purple/crimson with lifted aromatics of  rich plum and ripe blackberries. Beautiful spice aromatics carry through to the palate which also shows flavours of dark chocolate and mocha. The finish is long lasting with elegant silky tannin; persistent acid will soften as the wine ages.

Winemaking
The grapes were hand-picked and hand sorted. After crushing the juice underwent a 10% drain off to concentrate tannin content. It was then fermented and hand plunged in barrel. Following fermentation the wine was basket pressed and returned to French oak, 25% new, where it matured for 18 months. This wine is unfiltered.

Cellar
2028

Food Match
Roast duck with sticky star anise and chinese five spice sauce.
