Vilafonte Series M 2015
Winemaking and Maturation
Twenty two months in eighteen percent new French oak barriques, with the balance being older French oak. Series M 2015 consists of Merlot (forty percent), Cabernet Sauvignon (thirty one percent) and Malbec (twenty nine percent). Sixty eight barrels were produced.
The Series M 2015 exhibits plummy hues with an inky red-black colour. The wine leads with rich fruit characters of red plums, cherries and blueberry confit . Overtones of thyme and sage lead to a more savoury beef bouillon note, perfectly offset by warm and enticing hints of chocolate, oak and brioche. Oak aromas are well integrated and support a rich core of concentrated fruit and Peony floral notes. On the palate, Series M opens with succulent richness, with a fleshy, mouth-watering core, leading to exceptional concentration and length of fruit on the finish. It shows both finesse and intensity, eliciting plushness on the palate.
The Series M 2015 will reward the investor both as a young wine and over the next decade or more.
