Ballandean Esatate Malbec 2017
From vines planted in 1985, this one and a half acre site sits roughly 850 metres above.
Spending 12 months in French oak, aromas of canned plum and dry red flowers lead to handfuls of blackcurrant fruit laced with dried herbs, flashes of mint and cinnamon like spice. It's generous and persistent with an elegant marriage of fruit and oak. Soft pillows of tannin drive long to a moreish finish. Partner with meat dishes and you are the victor.
Drink now to eight years.
