DESCRIPTION
  • This well flavoured wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec sourced from some of the best vineyards in Mt Barker and Frankland River. Named after one of the pioneers of the region, it is beautifully textured with intense berry fruit characters and great length. Enjoy now or after careful cellaring.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Our Hanna’s Hill Cabernet Malbec showcases the intense Frankland River Cabernet and Malbec in partnership. After harvest, the parcels of Frankland River Cabernet and Malbec were co-fermented to ensure seamless integration of the two varieties from the beginning. Careful monitoring during fermentation with frequent pump-overs ensured maximum colour & flavour extraction from the skins. After pressing out, the wine was put to barrel in a mixture of new and older French oak for 10 months maturation before blending and bottling.

    TASTING NOTES

    An amazingly inky & dense crimson with a purple red hue. Intense aromas of dark berry fruits e.g. boysenberry & blackcurrant, with complexing dry savoury spice and lifted violets. The palate is beautifully full flavoured with great texture. The rich, dark berry fruit flavours are very well balanced by the drying tannins from the fruit and the well-integrated oak and gives this wine its great length and persistence of flavour. This is a wine with the depth of fruit and a spicy finish to be enjoyed while still young, but will also reward a few years in the cellar. A lovely balance of fruit and savoury will make this wine a good food match with many foods.

  • REVIEWS

    'If you’re looking for a good, no-fuss, high value red wine then this Cabernet Malbec is for you. It’s mid-weight, beautifully fruited, tightened just so and lengthy. Indeed, I’m a little bowled over. It tastes of assorted berries, mints, spices and leathers. It’s not a big wine but it has a bit of grunt to it. It’s good now but it will age well. It has positives at every turn.'
