Master Circle & Research Society Fellowship Exclusive for 2019 Release

The first red wine produced in Culmina's Number Series, the N° 006 Unfiltered 'Jeunes Vignes' Malbec was sourced from the juvenile Malbec blocks on both Stan's and Arise Benches, having been determined by Jean-Marc to differ greatly in terms of structure compared to the more mature lots. Handled quite differently in terms of oak treatment as a result, the N° 006 is a resoundingly delicious - and dare we say crushable - Mablec full of lip-smacking, juicy character. Only 250 cases produced.

WINEMAKING
During the 2016 vintage, the 'juvenile' Malbec lots from both Stan's and Arise Benches were found to have very different character in comparison to the mature lots. As a result, they were separated by Jean-Marc early on in the winemaking process and earmarked for different extraction and oak protocols. The softer juvenile lots were as such matured for 22 months in older french oak barrels to flatter the lots' more juicy, fruit forward character, and were also experimented with zero-filtration techniques in order to add leesy complexity to the wine. 

TASTING NOTE
Intense and extraverted, potpourri floral aromas comingle with black plum, red currant, and dark cocoa notes. The bold and lick-smacking palate smash the senses with fresh blueberry, Oolang tea, and sweet herb flavours. Barely-there oak, silky tannins, and a juicy acidity carry all through the charming finish. 

FOOD PAIRING
“Frankie We Salute You!”- style Korean bulgogi mushrooms with grilled greens, sticky rice, and ssamjang sauce; or Toulouse-style cassoulet with French sausage, confit duck leg and Tarbais white beans;
