Ranked #21 of 28 2018 Shiraz Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon from Heathcote
Deep, dark red/purple hue, earthy, muffled bouquet, some herbs and undergrowth nuances, the palate prune-like, rich and slightly chewy, with a fair bit of alcohol heat on the aftertaste. It's a tad unbalanced, but doesn't stint on flavour or body.
Drink: 2020 to 2033
Garnet red colour. The nose is so alluring. Sniff after sniff reveals earth, cut meats and blood sausage. Its intoxicating dark boysenberry aromas keep you coming back for more. The flavours are bold yet silky, supple, gritty and tightly wound. It’s opulent with a palate full of blue fruits. Blueberry, plums and tart red cherry are wonderfully primary. The back palate is long and sophisticated. Partly matured in concrete vats to further highlighting the pristine fruit in this wine. Enjoy over the next 7-15 years. 15.1% Alc. Shiraz 79%, Malbec 12% and Cabernet Sauvignon 9%. Bottled in 750mL only.
