I've become friends with a guy from Chile who makes barrels, he told me that the Argentinians love his barrels, so I tried 'em out.  Now I love them too!  Thanks, Alejandro!

Tasting Notes: Malbec, it takes like Malbec...

Pairing: Really good with hotdogs and fresh French fries

Grape Variety: Malbec

Winemaker Notes: We treated this Malbec like a king, a king crybaby that is: Small fermenters, punched down by hand, but I mixed it up with a rough split of American and French oak, can you tell?  Malbec can be a little sensitive, but it has a rough side, it reminds me of a song from a movie I saw once: "a king cry-baby with a tear in my eye, and if you mess with the king you're gonna cry, baby, cry..."

Time in Barrell: 30 months

Drink: 2019-2029

Crown & Thieves explained

The Crown

The people who drink our wines are of the utmost
importance to us, they are the crown, they are
the royalty. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to
do what we love, to make wine the way we want
to make them. People of all types are welcome
at Crown & Thieves, we come with no political
affiliations, no judgemental attitudes, and most
importantly, no snobbery.

The Thieves

In Essence Crown & Thieves started in the cellar, we
worked hard everyday trying improve our winemaking
skills and create better wines every year. Some of these
wines came across as a little geeky and were much different than the average bottle of wine. These wines were our favourites. Instead of blending our hard work away into larger batches we would “steal” these batches and save them for a future release.

sipped by royalty?

At Crown & Thieves the customers are our royalty, those people who without we could not do what we love.
