2007 was a powerful vintage, and Vilafonte's Series M reflects that with its intensity. Particular characteristics of the vintage were earlier ripening, picking at lower sugars, and lovely ripe tannins.

Our Malbec typically has gobs of dark blackberry fruit with fleshy, round tannins. The Merlot adds richer texture while the Cabernet Sauvignon tannins give intensity and structure, working as the
foundation for the blend. Cabernet Franc adds nuanced aromatics and helps polish the wine.

Rich on the palate from start to finish, the complexity of the flavours of cocoa powder, floral notes and black cherry make this blend a great expression of our estate vineyard site. The wine's deep colour, almost red-black, displays the intensity and ripeness of the grapes in the 2007 harvest.

Weather: The 2007 season had cool evenings and mornings, with a normal alternating rhythm of cooler and warmer days. Warm days just before harvest contributed to the intensity of the Merlot in the Series M. Very little rain fell during the last months of ripening. It was excellent weather to achieve these profound wines.

Producer Information

Vilafonté will only ever produce two wines. In the formative years, Winemaking Partner Zelma Long noticed that our vineyard was producing two distinctive styles. Both styles were of the highest quality, not one of them better than the other, but distinctive nonetheless. One portion of the vineyard produced a soft, rounded, fleshy and fruit driven style. The other side of our vineyard produced a bolder, more powerful and structured style. It was this realisation that lead to the emergence of Series M and Series C.
