LONDON CALLING CABERNET MALBEC 2019
Appearance: Dark Black/Red
Nose: It hits the mark with plump dark fruits, violets, leafy notes and liquorice.
Palate: We just love this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. The Cabernet brings structure with big tannins and classic varietal aspects of blackcurrant, cassis, liquorice and herbal notes. While the Malbec provides juicy plump plum and a mid-palate richness that entwines and harnesses the structure given by Cabernet.
Food Pairing: We are dreaming about pork belly with Chinese Five Spice crackling as we take another sip of this incredibly easy to drink wine.
About the wine: The 2017 blend shows true varietal characteristics of its two leading stars with minty fine tannins, hints of herb and a juicy opulence mid palate. 12 months in seasoned oak adds refinement to this wine without overpowering the slurpy, juicy primary fruits.
Country: Clare Valley, Australia
Grape Variety: Cabernet 75%, Malbec 25%
