Malbec 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

James Halliday: "Vivid purple hue; pure raspberry and blueberry bouquet with geranium and sage in tow; the palate is medium bodied and fleshy, with juicy fruit and fresh acidity to finish; an interesting specimen of the variety." <strong>91 points</strong>

Delatite is a small family run winery that was established in 1982 by Robert and Vivienne Ritchie and now run by their son David. Specialising in cool climate wines, especially white aromatics, it is sited on a picturesque rise overlooking the vineyards toward Mt Buller in North-east Victoria. As custodians of the land since the late nineteenth century, David and Catherine are committed to sustainable agricultural practices and winemaking with integrity. Since 2001 they have followed Biodynamic practices across all areas of vineyard operations and are applying for organic certification. Please visit our cellar door if you are ever in the district. We'd be pleased to show you our beautiful part of the world and the chance to taste our award-winning wines. Our new winemaker Andy Browning started with us in February 2009. He comes bringing considerable expertise in what he likes to refer to as natural winemaking, seeking to avoid the manipulation of the wines under his care, allowing the vineyard and vines to express their true flavours rather than showing the fingerprints of the winemaker. The fruit for Delatite is hand harvested and hand pruned and this gives the old vines (as old as 40 years) the best possible chance to express themselves. Read less
