Pegasus Bay Maestro 2019

 

The Maestro represents the best of the Pegasus Bay Bordeaux fruit. I was privileged to receive a pre-release sample and all I can suggest is that you get in the queue. There is a class about its swagger and I just want more.

Yarra Yering No. 1 2015

 


I was fortunate enough to taste this exquisite release from 2015 when I dropped by the cellar door not too long ago. In a re-release of 2015, only 100 bottles were made available. In short, it's a stunning wine.

Clandestine Vineyards Malbec 2020

 


Malbec is a variety that is a cracking drink when done well. A generous and brooding type, this release comes from the Margaret River region.

Gaelic Cemetery McAskill Cabernet Malbec 2019

 


Give this time and you'll reap the reward. Quite tense early, it was still calming itself down on Day 3 of tasting. With a long life ahead, it's a wine that grows on you with more time in the glass.

Golden Grove Estate Malbec 2019

 

The excitement Malbec generates from winemaker Ray Costanzo of late is getting to the same levels as his beloved Vermentino and more recently his Brosé Rosé. This Malbec is a beauty and his excitement is understandable.

Glen Garvald by Levantine Hill Merlbec 2019

 


Fancy Merlot and Malbec joining forces in the Yarra Valley of all places? "I've never seen this before!" I say to myself. Words you never want your GP to utter... Alas, this is a great combo and well played by the team at Levantine Hill.

Cirillo Estate Barossa Valley Malbec 2018

Marco Cirillo doesn't sell a lot of his Malbec, only because he loves it so much he drinks it all himself. He loves it! Off sandy soils, this a classic example of the variety.

Pegasus Bay Estate Malbec 2017

I wasn't expecting to come across a Malbec when in the Waipara district, and here we are. A pretty handy wine this is too.
