Not just another Malbec, under this dark, starry label is something slightly unusual: an Australian Malbec. Not something you see everyday, this ia an award winning, aromatic,  dark black Malbec from down under.

All the Malbec fruit comes from an estate in the Swan Hill region where there are 5 hectares of Malbec vines.

The Malbec vines are on their own roots and were planted in the year 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.

All the vines are harvested at night between mid to late March and grown on red sandy loam soil with limestone clay base. The climate is Mediterranean with summer temperatures between 30 and 40°C. Half the wine is given a short amount of time in oak barrels to add complexity.

Overall, this is darkly appealing, chocolatey Malbec with an abundance of crisp, minerally fruit. Ideal to accompany hearty comforting casseroles.

Australia

In 1873 French judges, tasting blind, praised wines from Australia, but withdrew when the provenance was revealed, saying that wines of that quality must clearly be French. Vines have been grown successfully in Australia since the 1820s as European settlers realised that the Mediterranean climate was ideal for viticulture.

Malbec

Malbec is a tale of two worlds - the old and the new. Malbec has become synonomous with Argentinia where the high altitude vineyards produce delicate, floral Malbec.

Yet, as with many things vinous, the grape came from France (where it was known as Côt or Auxxerois). Used in blends, including in Bordeaux, it's best known French expression is in Cahors.
