Seed Malbec 2015

Beautifully delineated, the 2015 Seed Malbec is a small lot single-vineyard wine that is aged for 16 months in new French oak and, I’m happy to report, has a long life ahead of it. At this stage in its development, the nose is quite primary and is heavily laden in fresh blackberries, plums, and macerated strawberries rendered more complex by attractive not<span class=”text_exposed_show”>es of sweet tobacco, bitter chocolate, iron ore, and violets. Winemaker, Giuseppe Franceschini’s training in the Friuli region of Northern Italy has gifted him with a light touch, and that sensibility translates in his reds. Fresh and elegant, there is a mounting energy in this wine, with a thread of acidity adding lift to well-structured tannins. Minerality makes its presence known on the finish, emerging through layered black fruit, spice, wild fennel, and sandalwood. 14.0% ABV | Sample

In the spirit of disclosure, I should mention that I handle the social media for this winery, I’ve been working with Seed’s team since February of this year—the winery owner’s have a fantastic story, a tale of risk, adventure and optimism, I’ve so enjoyed working with them.
