Our Current Releases
The 2022 Rosé, made from the same Fort/Ross Seaview fruit as our Pinot Noir is certainly not your typical off-the-shelf Rosé! On the nose, a complex bouquet of dried apricot, honeysuckle, watermelon and ruby grapefruit. Those aromas carry through to the palate which strikes a perfect balance of acidity and sweetness. A perfect wine to enjoy with fish or a fresh salad, or simply sip by the pool!
The Malk 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is quintessential of the SLD showing a deep garnet-purple and a sophisticated concentration from the nose to the finish. Aromas of plum, blackcurrant, cassis, and black cherry give way to notes of cedar, dark chocolate and graphite. Winter rains provided just enough ground water resulting in a bit lower yields while the mild to warm growing season allowed the fruit to ripen evenly with a slightly early harvest.

The 2020 represents the more feminine nature of the vintage. It is bright and silky smooth on the entry and offers a simply delicious mouthfeel. It presents everything that the Estate has; black cherry, fresh earth, black tea, hints of vanilla bean but adds another layer of gorgeous fruit with added violet floral notes and even a hint of clove spice and certainly forest floor. Truly an elegant wine that exhibits some concentration without compromising balance and finesse.
