Winemaker's Notes

Loaded with blue fruits, some violet and an underlying spice on the nose. The palate has a velvety texture with hallmark cassis characters. An elegant example of Malbec, finishing with a lovely fruit profile and soft tannins.

What's On The Bottle

Over the years I’ve developed a penchant for some great Cabernet dominated blends made in Australia during the 70’s and 80’s. When I’m on the road, I always have a dig around in the back sections of my favourite bottle shops hoping to hunt down an old bottle of this famous blend. It’s always surprising how well these wines age; they effortlessly manage to retain their vivid, inky purple colour and robust tannin structure over two or three decades. I can see why Cabernet Malbec has been one of my father’s favourite drinks for many a year, so I’ve grown the Malbec and made this for him to say thanks for being a good shepherd and pointing me in the right direction.
