Narrative Malbec, 2019

Shipped and sold by Okanagan Crush Pad

2019 Okanagan Valley 750 mL, 13.6% ALC/VOL
Critic's Rating 90 pts

This Malbec was sourced from the Cabana Vineyard on the Osoyoos lakefront. Fermented in Nico Velo concrete tanks and aged on its lees in concrete for 10 months has led to this minimally intervened wine. The warm southern days combined with the cooling lake effect has produced a rich and luscious wine with great retention of natural acidity and freshness. Warm violets and blackberries explode on the palate with soft sensual tannins coating the mouth. Enjoy with rich hearty meals.

Critic's Rating

Aromas of red berries, violet and white pepper. Flavours of blackberry, blueberry, plum and chocolate with a hint of tobacco. A pleasant mouthfeel with smooth tannins.
