Malbec 2017


Sam Kim Review: 87/100 (4 Stars) Brightly fruited and fragrant, the elegantly expressed bouquet shows ripe cherry, cranberry, mixed spice and toasted nut characters. The palate displays gentle weight and smooth mouthfeel, well supported by plenty of fine-grained tannins. An attractive middle-weight red that will go very nicely with savoury dishes. At its best: now to 2022.

Handpicked on March 25th our Malbec was de stemmed and put into small open topped fermenters. The wine was gently plunged and pumped over throughout fermentation to aid flavour and colour extraction. After spending a full month on skins the wine was pressed off into barrel.

Our 2017 Malbec is a selection of our best Malbec barrels and was made up of 25% new French oak.

This is the first 100% Malbec from Beach House and we’re very pleased with the result. Bright red fruits, ripe cherry, cranberry and spice can be found on the nose whilst the palate is smooth and elegant with plenty of very fine grained tannins giving a nice length on the finish.

A very fragrant and attractive red that would go wonderfully with some seared wild venison on a charcoal BBQ.
