Culmina Family Estate N˚ 006 Unfiltered ‘Jeunes Vignes’ Malbec 2016

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaJeunes Vignes or young vines speaks to the age of the vines growing in the south Okanagan on Arise and Stan's Benches along the Golden Mile. Post-fermentation, the juice is aged in neutral French oak for 22 months before it is bottled, unfined and unfiltered. It has a hint of Bordeaux style with plenty of New World verve, including alluring wild black fruits, and bright floral undertones that buoy a richly-textured Culmina palate. Best of all is an undercutting of freshness that lifts this red from the glass. It will improve the age, but you can drink it now with grilled lamb.Tasted: 04 January 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.00 winery online Producer: Culmina Family Estate WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
