NEW RELEASE

Beautifully floral with saturated black fruits, this is classic Malbec from a phenomenal site.

Production notes

Sourced from Lawrence Vineyards. Fermented in 100% stainless steel and aged in 50% new French for 26 months. Beautifully floral with saturated black fruits, this is classic Malbec from a phenomenal site. This wine continues to get better every year and for 2017 with the amount of material we had in this wine we decided to age it a little bit longer to improve our mouthfeel and the sense of saturation. You would never know this wine spent 26 months in barrel by how fresh and vibrant the nose is.

Winemaker Aryn Morell, a Washington native, honed his skills in Napa Valley working with some of the country’s most notable producers, including Silver Oak, Joseph Phelps, Quintessa, Husic, Chimney Rock, Chappellet, Stags Leap and countless others in winemaking and the chemical engineering of wine as part of a consulting company for which he worked.

Aryn joined the Gard team as head winemaker in 2011, and spends considerable time in the winery’s estate vineyard with Josh Lawrence, Gard founder and viticulturist.  With an uncompromising attention to detail, Aryn carefully crafts Gard wines with an eye toward the unique expression of terroir of the estate vineyard, and earns frequent accolades and high acclaim for his wines.

In 2014, Aryn and Gard founders Josh and Lisa Lawrence launched a winemaking facility in Walla Walla, M&L Production, where all the Gård wines are produced, bottled and aged. Aryn also makes wine for Matthews Estate, Tenor, Alleromb and Mullan Road, a Washington project for Cakebread Cellars of California.
