Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own.. Quiet consummations of grove estate»

The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most.. Softly spoken wonders from the west»

Bleasdale Second Innings Malbec CONFIRM VINTAGE

Malbec Langhorne Creek South Australia
Bleasdale have been working with Malbec for generations, refining the art of extracting optimal expression from the amiable, thin skinned grape, a key component to the estate's flagship Frank Potts red blend. Malbec is rarely seen as a pure varietal wine, but at Langhorne Creek it performs well enough to earn its stripes all on its own. Showing vibrant primary fruit flavours of plum, red berries and spice in its youth, it finishes soft and round on a length of velvety smooth tannins.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$251.00
Malbec is a grape with a past, found in some of France's most stately Bordeaux Crus where it contributes lifted perfumes to the nose and softness to the palate. In Langhorne Creek it performs extremely well on its own as a pure varietal wine, Bleasdale have been bottling Malbec since 1961. Fruit is harvested and treated to a term of cold soak, a portion is included as uncrushed whole berries. Parcels are vinified in a collection of old two to twenty two tonnes fermenters over the course of a fortnight. Upon completion, components are racked into a mix of seasoned and new French oak hogsheads and puncheons for malolactic and a year's maturation.
Bright red colour. A lovely bouquet of dark fruits swathed in chocolate, roasted meats with mint, briar and violet, followed by a fine essence of lifted cassis and red berries. It leads to a medium bodied palate exhibiting pure varietal flavours, a quenching acidity, savouryness and light gamey, meat character. Velvety smooth tannins and a soft finish.
