Kaiken Terroir Series Malbec Bonarda Petit Verdot

2017

In a Nutshell

A style of Malbec with surprising elegance

Tasting Notes

With a deep brilliant purplish red colour, this wine has fruit notes of plums and spices such as thyme. The palate displays the silky character of Malbec framed by the structure and freshness of Petit Verdot. The finish reveals interesting notes of fresh fruit from Bonarda.

Production Notes

Fruit was hand harvested into 17 kilogram trays to preserve whole berries and prevent splitting. Grapes were further hand sorted at the winery to remove any diseased or damaged fruit. After pressing, the must was fermented in small tanks to enhance the varietal characteristics. Alcoholic fermentation was conducted at 26ºC for seven days, followed by post-fermentation maceration at 10ºC for approximately 15 days. Finally the wine was aged for 10 months in a combination of new and used French oak barrels.
