"Opulent black forest fruit, coffee and violet on the nose; palate of kirsch, liquorice, sweet spice and cocoa."

Golden Mile Bench
100% Malbec from two micro-blocks on Arise Bench.
Matured for 16 months in a combination of new (23%), 1-year old (52%), and 2 plus years (25%) French oak barrels.
The 2017 Malbec is a classic expression of this variety from our spectacular vineyard on the Golden Mile Bench. Opening with aromas of lavender and fresh lilies this develops into dark cherry and black plums. This elegant wine delivers both structure and suppleness, making this superbly rounded Malbec a great wine to drink over the next several years.
Sautéed pork tenderloin noisettes topped with malbec-soaked prunes.
