TH Wines Malbec 2016

CanadaFrom a few organic plants on the Golden Mile, Tyler Harlton makes this hauntingly perfumed malbec. In 2016, instead of blending it away, he tossed a bit into a bin for native ferment, before a stint in barrel and then into bottle sans fining or filtration. Perfumed black cherry, wild blueberry, dusky floral plum and pink peppercorns woven throughout the soft, plush core, one easily arced with fine, firm bones. Brisk salts linger on the elongated finish. Tannins are tightly wound but fine and the alcohol is an alluring 12.6 percent. Not just the best BC malbec I've tasted (easy enough to say) but one of my top BC reds I've tasted this year (which is not easy to say). Twenty cases made, and all wine club exclusive, so no retail price to report.Tasted: 28 September 2017Tasted by: Treve RingProducer: TH WinesDistributors: Crush Imports
