2012 Ad Lib Avant Gardening Malbec, Frankland, Western Australia
Earthy and savoury on the nose with tobacco notes. The spicy, earthy herbs for this variety coat the palate for a balanced finish. A distinctive varietal character brings very deep inky wine with moderate tannin and plum-like notes. The juicy fruit flavours are finished with light violet aromas. Ripe, supple tannins and light oak influence supporting the palate. The wine is complex and integrated, due to the strong fruit influence.
Drink with: Rich seafood dishes
The Vintage/Winemaking: Western Australia was warm and dry. Even ripening produced classic varietal definition, very intense flavours and soft, gentle acidity. Selected yeasts and fermentation methods and very gentle treatment of the fruit were employed. Extraction was soft. Following pressing, the wine was aged in 5-7 year old oak and bottled after 5 months.
