MALBEC PACK! 2016 UNDERCURRENT MALBEC
Pack includes: (2) Creekside poolside acrylic patio glasses and (2) VIP Tasting passes coasters for Creekside (Value $25.00 each)
Fresh plum, blackberry, and black currant up front, followed by mineral and pencil lead, soft leather and smoky ash. Prominent gritty tannins with a long, rising finish. Red berries come up after 15 minutes in the glass with hints of sweet cinnamon.
If drinking young: prime rib, wild game (venison, bison, wild boar) and aged fatty beef steaks. If aging another year or two: hard cheeses, beef wellington, duck.
Might we be so bold as to suggest savouring the tasting moment as an after-dinner nightcap? The longer this wine relaxes in the glass, the more expressive it becomes.
Why we're drinking this
Creekside’s Undercurrent series of wines are made in small batches with lots of love from their beautiful, warm vineyards. You can taste the concentration and authenticity of the grapes in every glass. We suggest gathering loved ones around the kitchen or patio table, with well-roasted lamb or wild game. Creekside’s Malbec will pair very well with any meat focussed dinner and lively conversation.
With more acid than tannin, this is a juicy and suggestive style of Malbec. Notes of dark chocolate, candied watermelon slices (yes - watermelon!) and caraway spice run screaming out of the glass.
