DESCRIPTION
  • Malbec, a variety once popular in Bordeaux France, is now mostly associated with countries such as Argentina and regions such as Cahors in South West France. Langhorne Creek has a long history with Malbec and the climate is exceptionally well suited.

    This Special Release Malbec is the result of block selection, the parcels have been kept separate and nurtured for maximum expression of varietal character.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    This Malbec was fermented as several separate parcels then matured for 16 months in a mixture of new and old Hungarian and French oak barrels with a proportion aged on yeast lees to give the wine added structure and mid palate texture and fullness.

    TASTING NOTES

    This wine shows an intense perfumed aroma of violets and spice with a bramble lift, on the palate the wine is rich and fleshy with fine tannins.

  • REVIEWS

    'Rebecca Willson has crafted a precise, joyous range across Bremerton's ‘Special Release' tier. This is no exception, with a riot of black fruit allusions painted across a beam of toasty oak, a rudder for the cascading flavours. Gritty coffee grind tannins, purple florals and a wee tad of volatility, all serve to lift and refresh. Full of flavour and highly drinkable.'

    'Plum, chocolate, spice and nougat oak, perhaps some coconut, but in a good way. Medium to full-bodied, plenty of dark flavour, the spice and nougat again, fleshy tannin, and a good slightly saline finish. Delivers the goods.'
    91 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

    'Bright and snappy with aromatic raspberries and spice. The palate is brimming with boysenberry and mulberry flavours, and a touch of earth adds interest and depth. Well-made, delicious and extremely well priced. Get in quick before it sells out.'
