Familytree 'Natalie' Malbec 2013
The Familytree wines are made exclusively for you, our wine club members and are named after people in our family tree and yours. They are “one off” wines from carefully selected batches of fruit that grew very well in that particular vintage, never to be made again. The red wine this year will be a 2013 Malbec sourced from the Wilyabrup sub region, where we found a few rows of vines that had ripened these Malbec grapes so perfectly. Only available from the winery and stocks are very limited.
Even through it can be challenging to grow; this classic old school variety has never received its due recognition. Our 2013 Malbec has deep and multilayered purple hues. A complex and attractive aroma of dark fruits, spice and smoky cedar. Intense, sweet and generous on the palate with hints of juicy blackberries and rum & raisin chocolate. Robust with immense power and grip, yet retains its finesse with velvety soft tannins.
Wine Club Winner - We asked you, our members, to name this wine... and we have a winner! Thank you Hamish, Natalie is a lucky girl!
“My fiancé Natalie is robust yet delicate, vibrant yet restrained, intense yet refined. Natalie is the embodiment – the very essence – of a Malbec varietal. Impeccably perfumed with outstanding purity. Pure, full bodied elegance. Natlie warms the heart, let her warm yours.” Hamish Beer, Wine Club Member
Upon hearing the news, newly engaged Hamish said, "It is such a privilege to have a Familytree wine named after Natalie, the love of my life. What makes it even more special is that Malbec is one of our favourite wines. Thank you for the honour and for keeping me in the good books with Natalie a little while longer!"
