Malivoire Wine Company
Cheerful fruit scents recall wild berry jam, cherry and blueberry, accented by anise, vanilla and a spicy wisp of barbecue smoke. The palate, lively and fresh, is brimming with juicy fruit flavours like raspberry, blackberry and apple, and again, an appetizing hint of smoky meat.
Grapes grown on the Malivoire Estate Vineyard were picked by hand October 8th to 13th as grape sugars achieved 22.4° Brix.
Hand-sorted grapes were divided into three lots to ferment in oak cuve (50%), concrete vat (25%) or stainless-steel tank (25%). In all cases, 22 % of the grapes were retained in whole clusters, layered-in with crushed berries. After pressing, 41% of the wine went to stainless steel, while the larger portion aged in neutral (average 10-year-old) barrels. The finished wine was bottled six months later.
