An ongoing resurrection of some fabulous old vines, a distinguished Blewitt Springs site and a range of the most spectacular McLaren Vale wines. When Kelly and Bondar acquired Rayner Vineyard in 2013, they knew that everything depended on the management of site and soil to achieve the excellence of wine they had in mind. The most fastidious husbanding regimens and a tightly scheduled evolution towards organic viticulture, the propitious Rayner vines have never yielded finer harvests, all translating into a tour de force across the entire Bondar range. Salient quality and penurious pricing make for a compelling mix. Old vines grown to salubrious soils, the.. Model mclaren macerations»
Gary and Nick Farr are father and son, they make wine together but aren't afraid to go head to head when their opinions differ. Nick grew up amongst some of the world's most sacred vineyards, he knows about the land and found a magnificent little site, barely east of Lake Colac. Irrewarra is the vigneron's shangri-la, prepared for viticulture by generations of grazing and eons of the sobering south sea breezes, which stimulate vines to yield meagre harvests of parched little grapes, sleek of tannin and rich in flavour. Vintaged in excruciatingly limited lots, there are fully two styles of Irrewarra on offer, a grapefruit and oyster shell Chardonnay, a Pinot.. It's irrewarra by farr»

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

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.
