Wine Advocate-Parker : I also tasted two vintages of Malleolus, including the heady and ripe 2015 Malleolus, for which they selected grapes from vines ranging between 25 and 75 years of age. It had an 18-day maceration and matured in French barriques for 18 months. There is a lot less oak in these new vintages than what the wine used to have in the past, and the profile is more transparent with the conditions of the vintage. Here, I can feel the ripeness and natural concentration of 2015, with some grainy tannins and moderate acidity. Modern, ripe, concentrated and oaky but without excess. 193,480 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2017.
