Overview

In the Bordertown area the 2020 growing season started off with cool conditions at the start of the growing season but warmed up and generally hot dry conditions persisted throughout the season. The Mundulla Malbec was originally planted by Brian McGuigan in the late nineties and has now reached an optimal maturity level for premium fruit. The fruit was machine harvested and transported to the Hunter Valley where it was vinified using selected yeast and matured in French oak for 12 months.
