About

A tiny portion of Malbec from the famed Forrest Hill vineyard piqued Ryan O'Meara's interest after moving into his "new digs" just a fence-hop away. He managed to purchase a little, and with gentle hands has crafted a very interesting wine for lovers of this mercurial Bordeaux variety. The fruit was destemmed then, some bunches re-introduced to add some complexity and tannin development. It makes for an interesting combination of smoky and meaty aromas with vibrant primary fruit. Great stuff. Ryan only made a small amount, and it won't be around for long.

What it Tastes Like

Plums, licorice, smoky-woodfired oven scents. It's dark to the core but there's some vibrant red fruits on the fringes, which gives it a sort of push-pull fell. Thick ropes of dry tannin wind through the palate. It finishes with a savoury kick to the finish. Good value for Malbec lovers.
