Flametree Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2016

Flametree Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2016

WINEMAKING NOTES
All fruit parcels were selectively machine harvested before being tipped directly into open fermenters or pumped into static fermenters for a few days soaking on skins. Once the ferments kicked in, we started plunging and doing pump-overs for subtle tannin extraction. The individual batches were fermented around 18-25 degees, pressed and then transferred into new and used French oak barrels for maturation. After 12 months in 20% new French oak the Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec was blended, fined and then bottled.

TASTING NOTES
The nose is typically aromatic, showing mulberry, redcurrants and even blue fruits. The palate shows ripe, fleshy varietal Cabernet fruit, some savoury Malbec characters and fine, chocolatey tannins. Cabernet provides fragrance and structure, Malbec provides further dark fruits on the palate as well as ripe, sweet tannins; whilst Petit Verdot adds violet and a balanced, dry finish. Our first Cabernet Malbec blend will provide good early drinking and also age well in the short to medium term.

BLEND
70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Malbec & 5% Petit Verdot.
