2018 ‘Homage’ Cabernet Malbec

Malbec has been blended with Cabernet well before Merlot was even heard of in Clare – wines made in past days by Stanley Leasingham, Wendouree and Jim Barry are legendary. It is easy to see why the rich mulberry & plum characters of Malbec marry well with the more austere Cabernet based wines. Keep for 5-8 years. Perfect with roast lamb.

Colour:Deep red/purple tints.

Aroma:Attractive aromas of blackcurrant, satsuma plum and crushed violets – displays some lovely perfume. Also has a swirl of well-seasoned cedar oak too. Lovely.

Palate:The palate is full and rich displaying attractive crème de cassis and mulberry/plum flavours. Fine tannins and well-balanced acidity tie it altogether nicely. Finishes long and textural. Delicious.
