This is a dark purple-black monster. Fruits of the forest aromas are aplenty, with some hints of liquorice and spice. These aromas carry on to the palate, with cherries, berries and plums all apparent. Hints of dark chocolate and oak are supported by fine tannins, making this an excellent drinking experience.
Accolades and Awards
92 Points & Special Value Wine - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Deep colour; the complex bouquet is full of perfumed spices, even violets, the full-bodied palate living up to the promise of the bouquet and belies the overall misperception of the inability to make malbec as a straight varietal rather than part of a multi-varietal blend. It is redolent of saturated plum fruits, dark chocolate and dark cherry, the tannins fine but persistent. An absolute steal at the price."
Dan Traucki, Wine Assist “A couple of days ago was the first time I tasted wines made by these guys, it was a real eye opener. This wine has lovely aromas and elegant flavours with just a hint of the mulberry flavours that usually swamp Aussie Malbec. It finishes with good crisp acidity which makes it a super food wine ready for a hearty winter stew. GOOD STUFF"

From the Winery
John and Carol’s vision of restoring a 70 year old Blewitt Springs vineyard to its former glory began in 1984. Since then the Estate has grown to include a state-of-the-art winery, allowing full control from harvest to bottling. A hands-on approach and minimal intervention allows the varietal flavours achieved in the vineyard to carry through to the bottle. The Estate Range proudly bears the family name. Grown on our Estate Vineyard this Malbec shows intense aromas of violets, spice and perfume. The palate delivers lashings of dark cherries and chocolate with superb balance resulting in a long dry finish.
