Malbec 2015 Description ...
The parcels of fruit for the La Forge Estate Malbec are sourced from two different vineyards within the Languedoc Wine Region, the sub-regions of Limoux and Carcassonne. The vineyards are contracted from some of the best Estates within the different areas and represent both the old and new world. The different parcels of fruit are harvested at night from 26 year old vines for the Cabernet Franc and 18 year old vines for the Malbec.
Fairley's Wines Tasting Note ...
The Estate Red displays a brilliant purple with ruby tints in colour. The nose opens strong and complex with layers of red and black fruit, accompanied with chocolate and hints of violet, with toasted oak. The palate overwhelms with soft and full blackcurrant, dried plum, velvety soft with underlying liquorice, finishing smooth and round with even more spiced black fruit. Please allow to breathe 1-2 hour and would be best served with pasta, BBQ meat, game and mild cheese.
