  • The Sauer family have always been pioneers, keen on exploring what varietals thrive in their sprawling
    vineyard. In 2000, their quest for experimenting and learning led them to plant Malbec in the highest
    section of their Marcoux block. DeLille began working with this same block in 2012, and quickly
    discovered its charm in the cellar, eventually bottling 200 cases of that first vintage for our Wine Club.
    Now, after ten years of refinement in the vineyard and cellar, we are preparing to bottle the 2022 Red
    Willow Malbec. This effort has notes of marionberry, red plum, and rose pedal on the nose. The
    mouthfeel has beautiful texture and weight, with hints of milk chocolate and tobacco leaf. Red Willow
    fruit always has firm structure, but this is most welcome in a varietal that can often lack it. This wine is
    lively, fresh, and will be easy to enjoy on its release.
    • Single block, planted in 2000
    • Extended macerated for 3 months, then rested in 50% New French oak for 18 months
