N° 016 Natural Malbec
Golden Mile Bench
CLONE & ROOTSTOCK
596 & 101-14
This low-intervention Malbec was hand-harvested from vines on our Arise Bench Vineyard. Destemmed, but left uncrushed to preserve freshness, the grapes were fermented with no additives using only natural yeasts in stainless steel tanks and aged in neutral French oak for 3 months.
Vibrant plum in colour, enticing aromas of pomegranate, blackberry and violets are complimented by Okanagan sagebrush and black pepper. Fresh acidity and well balanced tannins provide structure to the juicy palate filled with ripe blueberry, plum and black cherry. A rich, persistent finish offers savoury notes of cardamom.
