Cabernet Malbec 2015

$20.00

Cabernet sauvignon and malbec grown in Margaret River hail from vineyards of excellent soil-quality and viticultural practices. Rich red berry fruit flavours dominate hints of regional mint and quality dusty oak. A stylish, medium-bodied cabernet malbec exhibiting a medley of black forest fruits, olives and violet characters. Ripe and lingering with a persistent, gravelly finish – this is an eponymous Margaret River style.

 

“Our Margaret River 2015 cabernet malbec has a special place for me. I have been intent on making one since we acquired our Margaret River property over a decade ago, and now that the fruit is thriving, I’m embracing its creation.

Ours is inspired from the Langhorne Creek reds I loved when living and studying in South Australia. Most were made with malbec which imparts a lovely juicy, earthiness which personally, I really enjoy.” 

Jason Conti – wine maker

 

Description

Cabernet sauvignon and malbec grown in Margaret River hail from vineyards of excellent soil-quality and viticultural practices. Rich red berry fruit flavours dominate hints of regional mint and quality dusty oak. A stylish, medium-bodied cabernet malbec exhibiting a medley of black forest fruits, olives and violet characters. Ripe and lingering with a persistent, gravelly finish – this is an eponymous Margaret River style.

 

A 70/30% blend, open-fermented, matured for 12 months in French oak (25% new). Bright, clear crimson purple; rich blackcurrant and plum fruit fills the mouth on entry before the line is broken and tannic ex fruit and oak appear on the finish. The price should facilitate cellaring and a consequent smoothing of those tannins. Rating: 90 points Cellaring: to 2029. James Halliday’s Wine Companion 2018
