Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This is Chateau Tumbleweed’s second year with Carlson Creek Malbec and we’re even more impressed than last year. Once again, this wine is the whole package: gorgeous floral elements of violet and lavender; deep, brooding characters of cassis and ripe plum; and a hint of earthy, green spice to round it all out. A definite star from this exciting young vineyard! Only four barrels produced.
Production Notes
Destemmed but not crushed to open-top, 3⁄4-ton bins. Lot was left ~13% whole-cluster. Cold-soaked 24 hours, then inoculated with specially selected yeasts (T73, BM45). Hand punched 3-4 times daily. Inoculated with Malolactic bacteria (Omega) around 7 Brix. Pressed at dryness after 10 days skin contact. Settled 2 days before barreling.
