The hot dry climate allows the grapes to reach excellent ripeness, and lush fruity characters, making an intense, black wine. A thick-skinned grape full of color, tannin and flavor, Malbec makes wines of great power and character, with blackberry, plums, tar, red pepper, sweet cherry, spice, licorice and deep bittersweet notes, almost like unsweetened chocolate, or espresso.
Contains 10 liters of concentrated varietal juice, yeast and all necessary additives. Yields about 6 gallons (or 30 750 ml bottles), and ready to bottle in 4 weeks.
Serve with game meats.
