'A ripping Malbec, almost lush in its fruit flavour and decadence, although its substantial tannin and extract ensure the wine has excellent structure for ageing. A ripper!'
96 Points - Huon Hooke

  • The 2014 Double Take is a barrel selection of the best parcel of Malbec from a selected vineyard. The wine is only made in small quantities in exceptional years and it is the ultimate expression of Malbec from Bleasdale.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    De-stemmed to open fermenters for preferment maceration. Pumped over up to 4 times daily. Drained & pressed after 11 days on skins, settled for 24 hours before racking to oak for MLF and maturation.

    TASTING NOTES

    Rich and full bodied, this wine shows all of the hallmark of great Langhorne Creek Malbec - intense violet, boysenberry and black olive aromas and flavours with powerful fruit flavour and firm structure from grape tannin.

    Cellaring Potential - Drinking well now until 2022.

    Alc/vol - 14.5%

  • REVIEWS

    'Deep, dark purple red colour, youthful and vibrant. The bouquet is intensely aromatic with violet, blueberry, mulberry notes and it's lush and generous in the mouth, full-bodied and smooth, with decadent ripe fruit surrounded by masses of supple, ripe tannins. A ripping Malbec, almost lush in its fruit flavour and decadence, although its substantial tannin and extract ensure the wine has excellent structure for ageing. A ripper!'

    'From local grower Rick Eckert's vineyard, de-stemmed, open-fermented, 11 days on skins, matured for 11 months in used French puncheons, trophy Australian National Single Vineyard Show, gold Langhorne Creek Wine Show '16. Deeply coloured; a limited quantity made, only in the best vintages, intended as the ultimate Malbec from Bleasdale. Significantly fuller-bodied than Second Innings, and promising much for those who wait.'
