This Cleanskin Grenache Tempranillo Malbec 2018 vintage has lifted red strawberry and cherry aromas and flavours of Tempranillo, with spiciness from Grenache and mid palate richness with plum and violet characters coming from Malbec. Ageing in older French oak hogsheads adds subtle, integrated perfume and toasted characters.

Winery & Vintage Info

Robust old-vine Grenache grapes left in the vineyard to fully mature, were crushed onto fermented and drained skins of Tempranillo and fermented with selected yeast for one week. Selected tanks were then topped and closed for another week for extended maceration prior to pressing. A carefully considered amount of Tempranillo and Malbec was added for increased complexity and fruit expression. The wines were then racked, filtered and transferred to a mixture of older French oak hogsheads. The wine remained in oak for 24 months before blending, filtration and bottling under screwcap for freshness and authenticity.

The quality of the red varieties, is excellent, with perfect ripening and picking conditions, along with some of the largest crops we have seen for many years. In summary, the vintage was later than we have seen over the past few years, but quality and yields appear to be some of the best in a decade.
