Malabar is a blend of varietals, vinified and matured individually in our dedicated Malabar cellar. The fruit was hand harvested early in the morning into small lug boxes. After a bunch selection, the individual berries were hand sorted over a sorting table and fermented in open 1800kg 100% new French oak vats. The individual components were matured in French oak vats for 12 months, during which time the barrels are tasted regularly. The best barrels were selected, blended and returned to barrel for a further 10 months. The wine was bottled without being filtered. Total production for the 2007 vintage was 28 barrels.
