Tasting Notes

The wine, simply put,

On the Eye: Deep purple colour

On the Nose: Plums, cherries, spice

On the Tongue: Medium bodied, refined, elegant, dark berries spice 

Best Enjoyed: Beef, lamb, duck


And for a more robust read, 

Organic Malbec in this case is not matured or aged in oak, so it offers the same red berry and plum flavours together with generous spice, yet without heavy feel to it. The wine is rich in flavour, but at the same time quite light. It is not just natural wine that was made with no added sulphites, it is how Malbec tastes like when made with no interventions.

This no added sulphites red wine has a beautiful deep purple colour with a bouquet of fresh red and black berry. Fruity yet subtle on the palate, Extra Libre offers an amazing texture and great length.

Food match: lamb of beef dishes would be perfect; medium bodied veggie mains

Grapes: 97% Malbec, 3% Merlot
