Red Rock Malbec 2010
For our 2010 Malbec, we co-fermented the Malbec grapes on Petite Sirah skins to integrate the distinct floral aromas of Malbec with the excellent tannic structure of Petite Sirah. We took great care to drain and press the wine at the optimal time to extract vivid colors and flavors without retaining any astringency. A portion of the blend received oak contact to add complex layers of vanilla and sweet aromatics. We added Petite Sirah to the Malbec early on, allowing the components of the blend to integrate seamlessly over time. As we approached bottling, we added Cabernet Sauvignon to the blend, giving this Malbec excellent structure and depth in the mid-palate.
Over the past decade Red Rock has gained an enviable reputation for producing superb ultra premium wines. They are handcrafted on the estate from vines that creep up the side of a dormant volcano west of Geelong. The mineral-rich soil, low rainfall and cool climate result in a unique terroir which, when coupled with sensitive winemaking, yields distinctly individual wines with power and finesse.
