This Malbec was grown on three different sites on the Sevenhill Cellars estate. These sites have slightly different soil profiles all following a theme of loam over clay grading to quartzite stone and shale.
In 2018, all blocks were harvested on the same day and fermented together, with pump overs occurring twice per day during its ten days on skins. Oak maturation was in 1 to 3 year old French and American hogsheads for 18 months
The wine has a deep crimson colour. The aroma shows complex dark fruits, plum and cherry, with hints of nori and boot polish. The palate is full bodied with a plumb fruit core and a long dusty finish.
