Sussex Squire The Raging Bull Malbec 2021
Fruit taken from a small house block of 30yr old vines on Wendouree Road. A beautiful mild vintage in 2021, saw the vineyard ripen evenly with the fruit showing finesse and elegance though lifted red and black fruit and savoury flavours. The Malbec was fermented on skins for 10 days in open fermenters and then the skins drained through the basket press to control tannin. Inky purple colour with elegant complex fruit flavours of blackberry, violet and earthy herbaceous overtone balancing the soft tannins with aging in 20% new and old French oak for 12 months.
Food Match: Great with Lamb Shanks or braised beef stew.
