Supernova from Domaine des Grandes Esperances from the Loire Valley is a delicious handpicked Malbec and a supple wine in contrast to its south of France cousins.

100% Malbec wine from a 30 year old vineyard plot growing on clay loam soil.

After harvesting by hand, the grapes are de-stalked and go into stainless steel tanks. They remain in tank for three weeks with pumping over morning and evening during the first week, after which the cap is punched gently from time to time to prevent the extraction of too much tannin or bitterness. After devatting, Supernova undergoes 12 months ageing in barrels used for 3 to 4 vintages.

The wine displays a purple hue and is complex on the nose, with aromas of cherry, peony and spices, with a slight animal character. Lovely structure and “tight” yet fine tannins give this wine a nice, interesting finish.
