2013 Santa Cruz Chilean Malbec from the M&M Grape Company. This Club is ALL IN!
It is no surprise that club members have been clamoring for a repeat of the last Chilean Malbec. It was outstanding. Paul Gatti, Assistant Winemaker at Millbrook Winery and Vineyards directed that movie to an Academy Award. But that was Bio Bio Valley Grapes. This year we go with the Santa Cruz sourced grapes. Let me refer you to last years post on this vineyard. Click here All Members are in and it leaves me to worry about…. well you know, why mention it now.
In order to accomplish this Frank Musto has agreed to crush and freeze one ton of these grapes for us to ferment in September. Frank the Juice Kurzatkoski will be in charge of this at M&M. Members are excited yet their innocence I am afraid makes them think they are ordering a Pizza. I understand their excitement but I also understand making Chilean Grapes….well let’s not talk about it at least not just yet. We will have plenty of time this spring to hear all about it long before we defrost these grapes. I will have my fingers crossed and I will be biting my nails. Can you do that at the same time? I think I can and will.
