This “Beaujolais nouveau” style wine is made a bit differently than our other wines. The Malbec grapes went straight from the vineyard into an inert tank filled with CO2 where they underwent an 8 day carbonic maceration. In this process, gas trapped in the tank diffuses into each individual berry and begins an enzymatic fermentation. This technique produces unique aromas of candied fruit and bubble gum that cannot be achieved with normal fermentation.
Nouveau wines are light, fruity, and meant to be enjoyed young. This is not a wine for your cellar - our Malbec Nouveau is best enjoyed at the Thanksgiving table slightly chilled.
