Exclusive for Research Society & Master Circle Fellows **2019 Fall Release**

The sixth (and first-ever red wine released) in the Number Series, Culmina’s N° 006 Unlflitered 'Jeunes Vignes' Malbec was sourced from the juvenile blocks of Malbec on both Arise and Stan's Benches. Following a sensory evaluation by Jean-Marc and the team, the young Malbec lots were separated early on from those of the mature blocks (which were destined for Culmina's 2016 Malbec in the Culmina Family Estate Winery Series) due to its more lip-smacking, juicy character.

The wine was then racked into neutral oak barrels to mature for 22 months before bottling, and left unfiltered to add a bit of leesy complexity to the final 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; Toulouse-style cassoulet with French sausage, confit duck leg and Tarbais white beans;
