"Long, ripe tannins give the wine a polished texture"

Golden Mile Bench
100% Malbec from two micro-blocks on Arise Bench.
Matured for 16 months in a combination of new (17%), 1-year old (23%) and 2 plus years (60%) French oak barrels.
The 2016 Malbec is a classic expression of this variety, showcased here from our Arise Bench vineyard, on the spectacular Golden Mile Bench.
You will find notes of Okanagan juicy red cherries and black plums. With structure and charm, this superbly rounded Malbec is soon to be a new Culmina fan-favourite.
5-spice and Darjeeling tea smoked Yarrow Meadow duck breast with crisp potato rösti and braised leeks.
