Terroir Notes: The majority of the grapes for Le Temps Infini Malbec come from the Lot region in South West France near Cahors, France's natural home for Malbec. In making Le Temps Infini Malbec, Communal Brands partnered with one of the foremost experts in the region: a family estate compromised of 27 hectares of organically farmed vineyards, where a younger generation has been farming without herbicides and chemicals since the 1990s. The vine ages range between 15 and 30 years.

Winemaking Notes: The grapes were fully destemmed and crushed, followed by a slow fermentation at 20°C. The wine macerated on the skins with punch downs for 15 days. It was then racked off the skins, followed by 8 months of aging in concrete tanks. Light filtration was done before bottling. The goal was to avoid an overly intense extraction and to showcase the beautiful floral and fruit notes that Malbec achieves in South West France.

The Canister Series: This new packaging represents a balance between form and function. It is eco-friendly and convenient, while still being elegant, eye-catching, and memorable. It has all the convenience of the bag-in-box with none of the stigma.
