Flat Roof Manor 2012 Malbec (Stellenbosch) South Africa
Availability: BCLDB Stores
Date Tasted: July 28th, 2014
Tasting Notes: A fruit-forward Malbec produced in the (mostly) off-dry style made popular by Apothic Red, where the focus is on boisterous berry flavours and aromas and less on balance or complexity. Sharp acidity tends to dominate the dried herbs and mild, mild tannins on the finish, though, the wine does delivers the berry-medley fruit you expect from a Malbec.
Missing the structure to age or develop, therefore, be sure to consume this wine in its youth and pair with sticky-sweet BBQ ribs. Drink now-2015.
