- SMALL BATCH CABERNET MALBEC BLEND FROM CLARE VALLEY
- LIMITED RELEASE MUSEUM STOCK CLEARANCE
This wine displays intense blackcurrant / mulberry fruit aromas along with some mocha and chocolate notes. Quite concentrated on the palate, but manages to retain a degree of elegance that we expect to see in Cabernet based wines. It will take decade or so to reveal its undoubted potential.
95 Point Rated - Mike Bennie The Wine Front
"Now this is something special, for those seeking bold, Australian red wines, at a prime time, from low yielding vines, in a region that does these varieties in a blend seemingly well. I wouldn’t drink a load of this, but geez, it’s impressive no matter what your proclivities are. Glorious perfume of blue berry fruits, Indian ink, black olives, dark chocolate, faint herbal notes. It’s soupy, generous and flows impressively and with authority through the palate. Loads of flavour, formidable concentration, yet freshness of feel and a lick of savoury, secondary dried fruits and spice helps impress in the complexity stakes. Tannins pull the wine in at a lovely, lazy pace. The finish is a touch muddled with dusty, leathery notes, but overall, such satisfaction in this bold, rich, deep wine."
Cabernet and Malbec have long been great blending partners in the Clare Valley with many fine examples being produced over the years. Deep red colour as is the norm with the red wines from the Gaelic Cemetery Vineyard.
