Knappstein Insider Shiraz Malbec 2013

I liked this wine. A lot! So much so I just wanted to drink it and not write about it.

Will it win gold medals? Probably not. Will it win lots of fans, hell yeah!

If you are looking for something oozing drinkability with a little point of difference, perhaps your search ends here. And let's face it, it all comes back to whether a wine has that drinkability/smashability factor. This does and then some.

Made with 40% whole bunches, what you get is sleek and damn fine to drink. All the fruit comes from the Clare Valley and is a blend of 70% Shiraz and 30% Malbec.

Opening with red liquorice type aromas and purple flower florals, this is jam packed with juicy red fruits and plummy Shiraz along with some mulberry and blueberry bobbing up. Not too dense but with a muscular kick, all this is tied together by a dash savoury goodness and soft acidity.

A great match for beef dishes or just to smash with good friends.

Hands down a winner for me. Step right up and rip right in!
