2017 Phantom Creek Vineyard Co-Fermented Malbec/PV

2017 Phantom Creek Vineyard Co-Fermented Malbec/PV

 
Vineyard Designation
Small Lot

Phantom Creek Vineyard’s two small blocks of Malbec and Petit Verdot were picked together and co-fermented to create this unique blend. This technique is ideally suited to both varieties. The result is a beautiful plush and ripe wine balanced with structure and texture. Hints of licorice, herbs, and white pepper on the nose with dark fruit and savoury flavours on the palate. It’s age worthy but very drinkable in its beauty right now.

Vineyard Notes
Established by pioneering viticulturist Richard Cleave in 1996, Phantom Creek Vineyard is located on the lower terrace of the Black Sage Bench just above the warm valley floor. The tiny, seven-acre parcel is planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon. Since the early 2000s, fruit from the property has been used for single vineyard bottlings, a tradition we proudly honour and continue today at the winery.
