Showdown The Bird Malbec

Plush, blueberry fruited, violet scented Malbec from an unexpected region in California’s central valley.

California, a wildcard for Malbec? Not when the game is played in the sun-kissed vineyards of the Central Valley - the perfect growing environment.

Grapes are sourced from the northern end of California's long central valley. Malbec here benefits from the cooling influence of San Francisco bay so grapes retain freshness. After fermntation 70% of the Malbec is aged on oak for 4 months giving good integration and subtle oak characteristics. A small percentage of Syrah is blended into the wine before bottling to give some extra structure to this plush red wine.
