Lamonts 2001 BLACK MONSTER

The Black Monster is a small production premium red. It is made exclusively from Franklind River Malbec.

Using Bordeaux Red yeast, the wine was fermented in open vats using both "pumping over" and "hand plunging" techniques to extract the maximum colour and flavour.

The two barrel batch was aged in new and one year old french oak barriques for 23 months, prior to minimum filtration and bottling. The wine has been cellared for three years before release.

Colour: Black, brick red hue.
Bouquet: Full ripe brooding black fruits and oak derived spices.
Palate: Silky smooth and seamlessly crafted with intense but elegant and refined fruit.
Cellaring: This wine may be enjoyed now but cellaring for 5 - 8 years will be rewarded.
