Oak

French and American oak barrels (new and seasoned).

Colour

Blueberries, and when we say blue blueberries, we mean blueberries. This is intense mouth staining colour.

Nose

Again blueberries. Also classic Malbec mulberry,red cherries and notes of cedar and wafts of violets. With just a hint of fresh baked pastry

Palate

Entry: Intense, juicy and super youthful"grapeiness" again lots of blueberries. Almost overwhelming. Middle Palate:Generous and quite sensual it is structured despite the lashings of fresh fruit. Really rich and lush. After Palate: Flavoursome, rich sweet berry fruits and Damson plum is on top of rolling red fruits and...Blueberry pie! Finish: The finish is lush and mouth filling with a glycerol sweetness balanced by gentle tannins and a soft fresh acidity. In Summary: This is the sixth consecutive vintage to be released as a 100% Malbec. Sensual and structured this is our ideal Malbec, the only problem being how we can keep some long enough to watch it evolve in bottle.

Background

The fruit for the Violet Beauregard comes from two blocks on a single vineyard in the heart of the Langhorne Creek. Primary fermentation takes place in a combination of stainless steel vats and 5 tonne open fermenters after which the wine is assembled into tank and allowed to complete a natural malo-lactic fermentation before being pressed off. It is then transferred to new & well-seasoned hogsheads and aged for up to12 months prior to bottling with minimal filtration. This results in a wine with purity of fruit that is unpretentious and eminently satisfying to allow for regular indulgence.
