Wendouree Shiraz Malbec 2013
An iron fist in a velvet glove best describes these extraordinary wines. They are fashioned with commitment from the very old vineyard (shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, malbec, mataro and muscat of alexandria), with its unique terroir, by Tony and Lita Brady, who rightly see themselves as custodians of a priceless treasure - James Halliday.
A blend of Shiraz (50%) and Malbec from 1919 and 1920 Eastern vineyard plantings. Plum, licorice, dried herbs, blackberry and a smattering of gum leaf. Medium bodied, slaty and almost bloody, distinct mineral tannin, rosy mouth perfume, grip of tannin and an inky mineral laced finish. Has a lightness to it, feels almost airy, but carries grip and authority too. The combination of Shiraz and Malbec this vintage make for strange, yet interesting, bedfellows.
