Malbec is rarely seen as a varietal wine but here at Bleasdale and in Langhorne Creek it stands on its own two feet and performs well enough to earn its stripes.

Cellaring Potential - Drinking well now until 2023.
Suggested Food Pairing - Barbecued lamb, beef or pork with a smokey, chilli-based rub.
