Twenty rows of a single vineyard were selected to produce this wine and special vineyard practices were followed from pruning to harvest, to ensure optimal expression in this Malbec. Green harvesting was done prior to its picking date to ensure good flavour concentration. Gentle extraction by way of pump overs during fermentation; partly inoculated a percentage with wild yeast. Malolactic fermentation was completed in barrels. The wine was then matured for 21 months in French oak barrels. Only 3 barrels were selected from 12 barrels for this blend. This 100% Malbec is to showcase the beauty in which the fruit is expressed as a cultivar.
