Inspired by the Australian night, this is darkly appealing, chocolatey Malbec with an abundance of crisp, minerally fruit.

Food match:

Great with rich and hearty food. Try me with a rich casserole or roasted Mediterranean vegetables.

Production:

All the Malbec fruit comes from an estate in the Swan Hill region where there are 5 hectares of Malbec (approximately 12.5 acres which produces 90 tonnes of fruit per vintage). The Malbec are on their own roots and were planted in 2000. With the age of the vines and the harsh growing conditions, the Malbec vines are less vigorous which leads to a more intense colour and flavour. The vines are trained on a two wire vertical trellis, drip irrigation and minimum fertilisation. All the vines are machine harvested at night between mid to late March and grown on red sandy loam soil with limestone clay base. Climate is Mediterranean with summer temperatures between 30 and 40°C. Total vineyard area is 1250 acres. Once the grapes have been crushed pressed and sent to the fermenter, the winery then pumps over 4 times a day. Vinification takes place in stainless steel tanks at 25°C for three weeks. Malolactic fermentation takes place over 4 weeks. 50% of the blend is aged in French and American oak barriques for 3 months.

  1. Message by return, saying out of stock, but more stock expected! Delivered next day! Lovely wine and exceptional service. You have a new customer!

  2. Just made my 3rd order of this wine (over 3 months….). This is an amazing wine for a price point not far above my usual supermarket price point but feels like a real treat. Highly recommend from a repeat customer.

  3. Nice, drinkable wine

  4. A very nice wine at a good price , we really enjoyed it

  5. A great well balanced Red wine from Australia.
