Mont Rocher, Malbec, Vieilles Vignes, IGP Pays d'Oc, France, 2018

Producer Profile

Southern France, with its multifarious regions, indigenous grapes, cultures and traditions is home to some of the most exciting, characterful wines in the world at present.

Mont Rocher is a collection of wines produced from indigenous varieties, produced in a style that lets them clearly express their varietal typicity and sense of place.

Viticulture

Sourced from small parcels of vines in the South of France and focus on intriguing varietals that are indigenous to that region.

Winemaking

Picked at their optimal ripeness, in mid September, the grapes are de-stemmed then crushed, finally they undergo a three weeks maceration in order to extract carefully all their quality. The extraction is made by pumping over during the first ten days of maceration. The wine gains its fruit complexity and juicy flavours with a small part being aged in oak.

Tasting Note

Deep in colour with ripe plum, blackberries and cherries on the nose. This is rich and rounded wine with perfectly balanced tannins. The long finish is smooth and succulent.
