BATTLE AXE 2OO9 MALBEC
This 1OO% varietal Malbec from Argentina is sourced from a Single Vineyard Estate consisting of vines that are between 8O- and 1OO+ years-old. The vineyard is harvested by hand using small boxes of 25 pound capacity. The whole bunches are then sorted by hand with only the choicest grapes selected for the final wine, which is aged in new French oak barrels for a full 12 months. It then rests in the bottle for a further 6 months prior to release. This Malbec possesses a deep ruby red color with vivid purple tones and offers a great intensity with a complex nose of wild berries and red ripe fruit combined with subtle spice notes. Its fruit flavors combine with toasty hues providing great structure, character and a long finish. Suggested retail is $17.99. Available from MS Walker.
