2014 “Homage” Cabernet Malbec

Colour

Deep Red

Aroma

Absolutely fresh red fruits in the cranberry / raspberry spectrum. Bright and spotlessly clean – very enticing aromatics.

Palate

A medium to full bodied palate displaying sweet fruit, fine tannin, balanced acidity and barely perceptible oak. The blackcurrant and mulberry flavours are rich, long and juicy.

Summary

Malbec has been blended with Cabernet well before Merlot was even heard of in Clare – the wines made by Stanley Leasingham, Wendouree and Jim Barry are legendary. It is easy to see why the rich mulberry characters of Malbec are well suited to the more austere Cabernet wines. Perfect with roast lamb
