Description

A blend of Malbec from 2 different vineyards just over the road from each other in the Armagh region of Clare. Picked, as with all our wines, on flavour alone. The vines in both vineyards are around 30 years old.

The fruit was crushed and destemmed and the 2 vineyards fermented separately with daily pump overs and were on skins for a total of 33 days. They were then pressed to tank and aged on their gross lees for 162 days before racking to oak, all of it French, (and mostly older) for 24 months. 16% new oak. No racking.

A selection of the best barrels was made and the 2 wines were then blended and bottled in October 2021. No fining, no filtration.
