MALBEC 2021 QUICK NOTES
APPEARANCE: Deep, dark magenta with purple hues.
NOSE: Intense aromas of blueberries and black cherries with subtle notes of oak and cocoa.
PALATE: A silky smooth, full-bodied wine with ripe, grippy tannins and flavours of dark wild berries with a long finish of blueberry, oak, spice and cocoa.
PAIRING: Drinks well on it’s own, but pairs superbly with Italian food, lean steak cuts and with richer fish such as salmon.
AGEING POTENTIAL: Ready for consumption now. Will age well for 5 to 8 years.
Malbec is a purple grape variety known for making inky dark wines with substantial tannins. It is one of the six cultivars allowed in a Bordeaux blend and was made famous in Argentina. On Mischa we have a very small planting of Malbec, so the production of this awesome wine is extremely limited. The Malbec is the smallest part of Mischa Estate’s production, but it is certainly one of the most unique and special wines we have to offer.
