2017 Fair Play Malbec
This French-style Malbec, grown in the high elevation of the Fair Play region, brings sophisticated blackberry and boysenberry scents with hints of violet and vanilla. This rich wine has a perfectly balanced acidity and finishes with a long smooth tannin. The 2017 varietal of Malbec was grown in a higher elevation in the Fair Play region at 2,600 feet. The grapes were grown in soil composed of decomposed granite, trained to grow in a vertical shoot positioning (VSP). The warm breezy afternoons with cool mountain nights provided the perfect climate to yield a delectable fruit.
