Description

Blankbottle Jaa Bru 2022

The Rolling Stones inspired label has another meaning on this Malbec from Stellenbosch. If you translate the word “Mal” from Afrikaans to English, it means “crazy” and “Bek” means “mouth”.

Grape Varietals & Region: 
100% Malbec. Single vineyard trellis Malbec - Blaauwklippen road - 254m above sea-level NE facing slope.

Taste Profile: This medium to full-bodied wine shows the gentler and elegant side of Malbec, with gentle tannins, rounded mouthfeel and great freshness. It has lovely minty notes, sweet perfume of violets and a hint of dark chocolate on the finish.

Winemaking Process: The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness and cooled overnight to 4 degrees celsius. The next morning the grapes were destemmed to open top fermenters. The juice underwent spontaneous fermentation and stayed on the skins for as long as possible. Pressed into older French oak small barrels, 11 months in barrel, blended and bottled.
