Description

Wow! It’s an assault on your senses in the best possible way. Firstly, the colour is extraordinary and that’s what you get with Malbec. It’s got really, really vibrant aromas of forest floor and dark, brooding fruits lurking in the background. And there’s some nice French oak too. Just a hint and just enough. And then, there’s that palate that’s chock full of tannins – really soft ones. It’s an absolute cracker and I can tell it’s going to be my favourite wine for a while.

A gorgeous rendition of the variety; it is sweetly fragrant on the nose showing blackberry, blueberry compote, vanilla and cedar characters with nuances of violet and warm spice. The palate is concentrated and succulent with plush texture and velvety mouthfeel, wonderfully framed by polished tannins. Delectable and very impressive. At its best: now to 2025.
