Waterlily | Malbec 2017

R105 / 750ml

Deep purple colour with concentrated aromas of plum, cigar box, cassis and toffee. Notes of plum and toffee continue through on to the palate and are supported by well-integrated tannins and lengthy finish. The wine pairs well with savoury duck, venison and pork dishes.

Vinification

Grapes are hand-harvested from 16-year-old vines on the centre slope of the Tierberg mountains. The bunches are destemmed, crushed and placed into open-top fermenters. After cold-soaking for 48 hours, the grapes are inoculated with selected yeast strains to begin fermentation. The grapes undergo punch downs and pump-overs 3 times a day. After pressing, the wine is transferred to 20% new, 40% second fill and 40% third fill French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation for 18 months, until bottled.
