Moon Curser Malbec 2016

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFresh cracked peppercorns fill this full palate, padded out with blueberry, blackberry jam, plush plum, thorns and gripped with ample tuggy tannins. Inky in hue and in the mouth, this is an intense wine, yet holds its appeal through its perfumed purple floral fruit. There's a lovely peppery spice note on the lifted finish, belying its near 15 degrees. From Osoyoos East Bench's Moon Curser Vineyard and its loamy, sandy soils, grapes were uncrushed, cool fermented in large stainless and pumped over thrice daily. The wine then went into French oak (one quarter new).Tasted: 29 November 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 30.99 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Moon CurserDistributors: BCWineshop
