Moon Curser Malbec 2021

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA good example of why you can’t condemn a region for wildfire smoke out of hand. Only a few kilometres south of the Black Sage Bench, the wildfire had less of an effect on the Osoyoos East Bench vineyards of Moon Curser. The harvest occurred in the last week of October, and the fermentation was in stainless steel. The aging was in 225L French barriques (24% new). The nose is alive in blueberries, mint, violets and savoury desert scrub with light smoke. The palate is juicy with more red and blue fruits with subtle spicing, all in balance. This delicious bottle of malbec will have a wide audience, especially if you serve it with barbecue pork ribs. Ready to drink and I suggest you don't wait.Tasted: 01 August 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
