A really interesting, medium-bodied wine with flavours of satsuma plum, smoked almonds, and liquorice. Dark fruited but soft and laid back, eucalyptus, brown soil feeling, like from the land. Ferrous and herbaceous, juicy and fresh with a chewy finish, great for sharing and food friendly. An attractive, personality plus Malbec!

Tasting Notes.

Reviews of the 2022 Malbec:
91 points, Stuart Knox, The Real Review, February 2024: 
"Opaque core, deep ruby rim. Rich nose of blackberry and cured meats. Deep and weighty black fruits fill the senses. It is well encased in firm gravelly tannins that ensure length and accentuate meat and bloody savoury notes into the finish."
91 points, Lisa Cardelli, Winepilot, October 2023: 
"Whenever I see that translucent blueish hue, a deep-like-a-dark-night colour, and a concentrated blueberry/plum/violet trio, I’m always in the Malbec territory. The moderate level of tannins is slowly building and keeps the momentum well past the end, leaving a bitter aftertaste that well contrast the plumpness of this wine."
Reviews of the 2021 Malbec:

91 points, James Suckling, April 2023:
"A note of citrus lifts up the aromas of crushed plums, sour cherries and whole nutmeg. Medium to full-bodied with taut tannins. Juicy and fresh on the palate with a chewy finish. Drink now."
Reviews of the 2019 Malbec:
90 Points, The Wine Front - Gary Walsh:
"Lovely label. Blood plum and spice, salted nuts, pistachio maybe, and an iron and floral perfume. Medium-bodied, saline and nutty, fine tannin, blood orange, skinsy tannin and a fresh raspberry finish, though those salty nuts come through as well. Good. Character plus."

92 points, James Suckling:
"This has super fresh delivery of ripe purple berries and flowers with a smooth, gently fleshy palate that offers a deep core of dark plum and mil-chocolate flavors. Nicely done."

Reviews of the 2018 Malbec:

2019 Drink Easy Competition:
"Cherry ripe, choc and some prominent oak whiffs, shows with good length and upfront there's good concentration and flavour"

Wine & Viticulture Journal - Spring Edition:
"Subtle earth, spice and plum character on the nose along with deep chewy fruit and licorice. Rich and dense black-fruited palate, with some raspberry and a hint of herbs. Rich mouthfeel, acid line and oak well balanced. A nice quaffable wine."

Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show - GOLD with 96 points:
"Earth savoury, creamy texture and length. Soft and sublet well handled, more traditional Australian style. Ripe fruit and nice balance, fruity and juicy."
