Single Vineyard Lone Pine Vineyard Malbec 2016
The 2016 vintage had a light crop and warm dry growing season which led to ripe berry and jam flavors for our Malbec. Picked on October 3rd, the fruit was crushed into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. After 3 weeks, the young wine was then pressed off the skins and settled before being placed in small French oak barrels. After 26 months of aging the best-tasting barrels were separated from the lot and assembled to be bottled as our limited release Lone Pine Estate Vineyard designate.
