Malbec

Bloemendal Waterlily Malbec Grapes: 100% Malbec
Origin: Estate grown, Durbanville

Production Method & Ageing:


Handpicked grapes, de-stemmed and crushed at the cellar. The wine fermented on the skin in open top fermenters for a period of 18days with twice daily punch downs to assist extraction. After pressing, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in tanks. Aged in 300L French Oak barrels for 16 months. 3rd and 4th fill barrels were used.

Tasting note/ ageing ability/ recommendations:

In intense wine is every regard, dark brooding appearance, black fruit aroma and broad firm tannins on taste. The wine is meant for accompaniment of food and good company, not a shrinking violet way. Will age seamlessly for 4 to 6 years.
