A Malbec from the grape's traditional French home of Cahors, K-Nom adds a touch of Merlot for finesse. Grapes are sourced from the Clos Troteligotte organic and biodynamic vineyards of high elevation, with unique calcareous-clay-siderolithic soils, (red clay soil of limestone rich in iron). Initial cold maceration followed by fermentation with natural native yeasts, manual punching down and a second maceration. The wine was aged in unlined concrete vats, on its fine lees for 18 months. Only a minimal amount of sulphur was added at bottling.
The 25 year old vine and soils impart outstanding minerality and complexity. K-Nom is a modern styled Cahors wine with intense aromas of blackcurrant, menthol nuances and wonderful mineral notes. Concentrated black fruits persist on the full bodied palate, with good balance through to a textured finish. Try with roasted pork, goose, stuffed mushrooms or pepper, blue or other pungent soft cheeses.
The ever-innovative Emmanuel Rybinski of Clos Troteligotte is one of Cahor's up and coming young stars. The 14 hectare vineyard is located atop an iron-rich plateau on the southern border of the Cahors appellation and produces predominantly Malbec. Respect for the land is a priority for this family estate commitment to sustainable farming practices and organic agriculture certification in 2014, also embracing biodynamic viticulture.
