Summary: Renegado wines are bold in character and flavour and crafted to pair perfectly with red meat. We aren’t too worried about current fashion or trend heading toward more medium bodied wine styles. For centuries every wine producing country has proudly celebrated this wonderful food and wine connection.
Vineyards: The Renegado Malbec has been sourced from low-yielding old-vine South Australian vineyards.
Winemaking: The fruit was hand-harvested in the early morning to avoid the heat of the day. Delivered quickly to the winery for crushing then fermentation in steel tank before partial maturation in older French Oak. The wine was bottled with minimal fining and filtration and released soon after.
Vintage 2018: Bountiful winter rains set the season up beautifully ensuring plentiful soil moisture. Parts of South Eastern South Australia was hit by a hail storm but fortunately had minimal effect to bunches as it arrived a touch too early. A fairly warm and even Summer and early Autumn ensured consistent ripening and maximum flavour development and ripeness. 2018 should be considered a very good year for much of the region.
Tasting Note: This is a full-bodied Malbec showcasing rich, upfront blackberry and blueberry fruit flavours with milk chocolate and vanilla cream nuance. The flavours are mouth-filling with Malbec’s renowned, albeit here, soft tannins pulling them persistently long delivering a very satisfying finish. Perfectly suited for hearty red meat dishes of any kind.
