Tussock Jumper Malbec 2019
Tussock Jumper Malbec is a hearty wine that pairs beautifully with grilled vegetables.
Bright red colour with purple hues. Fresh raspberry and cherry aromas on the nose. The medium-bodied is quite dry, has gentle tannins and a bright acidity. Dominant red plum flavour with fruity layers of blackberry, raspberry and cherry, as well as light pepper and oak nuances.
100% Malbec. The grapes come from vineyards in San Juan, Argentina. The vineyards are in the Caucete district, 650 metres above sea level, in a soil of alluvial origin with texture from sandy loam to clay loam and low content of organic matter.
Hand harvesting of the grapes, which are then immediately sent for vinification to keep the optimum conditions. The wine rests partly in French and American oak for 3 months.
