We are excited to release another first for HillCrest: the 2015 Malbec/Tempranillo
from our estate.
This broodingly dark variety is famous for its dark color and deep, almost mulberry-type fruit.
Another grape that is best known for its texture.
These two grapes are a 'peanut butter and chocolate' kind of strange combination that
works incredibly well. Where Malbec in Southern Oregon tends to carry its dark
color and bright and fresh black fruit, the Tempranillo lends a richness of
mouthfeel and length. The 2 are really magic together.
Our 2015 Malbec/Temp blend was co-fermented in our patented concrete
fermentors and then aged in European oak for almost 2 years. This wine tastes
great today, but should be a great ager.
Only 200 Cases produced.
