Quick Overview

Phantom Creek Vineyard

Small Lots Malbec 2014

FLAVOUR PROFILE
A deep ruby colour with an aromatic bouquet of cherry, boysenberry, blueberry, violet, sweet spice and spicy oak. A medium-bodied wine with delicate tannins and food-friendly acidity. On the palate, look for juicy ripe cherry, plum, blueberry and blackberry fruit flavours. The lingering finish shows similar red fruit notes as the palate, along with a dusting of delicate spice and chocolate. Pairs well with grilled steaks with a chimichurri sauce, roast beef with root vegetables, meat pies, Shephard's pie, Irish stew, and black bean empanadas.


WINEMAKER NOTES
Phantom Creek Vineyard is the ideal place to grow Malbec, giving us a glimpse of future potential in the Okanagan.  Combined with thoughtful winemaking, this rare variety shows true character and nuances of terrior.
