SPIER VINTAGE SELECTION MALBEC CABERNET 2005
Ripe red cherry and spicy tobacco aromas follow through to a mouth-filling, elegant palate. Layers of red wild berry and integrated oak linger on a velvety finish. The juice fermented in stainless steel tanks, with malolactic fermentation completed in oak barrels. The malbec matured in French- and American oak, while the cabernet franc and petit verdot aged in French oak, for 12 â€“ 14 months prior to blending and bottling. Serve with meatloaf layered with spinach and mozzarella, or roast aubergine lasagne.
