The definitive star of Argentina. Robert Parker Jr., the world’s foremost wine guru has stated (….Argentinean Malbec’s) place in the pantheon of Noble wines will be guaranteed”. Our Malbec is distinguished by its dark, dense structure, full, rounded mouth-feel, prominent, lush flavours of ripe cherry, black currant and black berry, subtle notes of clove, vanilla and caramel with background suggestions of earthiness. The bright, vibrant edge is beautifully counter-balanced by our 2-stage Hungarian oak process.
The wine is full-bodied, deep garnet colour and richly dry. Notes of plum, sour cherry, raspberry and vanilla gradually marry with anise, bitter chocolate, coffee, tobacco, leather and fig tones that develop with age. Long, lingering finish
Barbera has been the most popular grape in the Piedmont region in Northwest Italy for centuries. Deep ruby, medium-bodied, and fruity in its youth, it ages to impressive depth and elegance. The oak and tannins have a soft and well-rounded impression that lifts the fruit to a most attractive level.
The vineyards have high calcium carbonate content in their soil. This imparts a distinctive chalkiness which combines with the powerful dark fruit qualities of the grape to create the big, chewy mouth-feel that is a clear signature of Red Mountain Cabernet.
The wine shows a deep, crimson colour with purple undertones. The up-front aromatics reflect the typical dark fruit notes of blackberry, cherry, and plum, complimented by restrained black pepper which should become more pronounced with age. In the background are subtle layers of toast and vanilla from the oak. The aromas continue to the palate creating a soft, rounded expression of the fruits, spice, and oak. Tannins are in gentle harmony with the overall impression and create a well defined, yet delicate frame for the wine. This Shiraz should be a very good match for a wide range of foods - steak, braised lamb shanks, pizza, chili con carne, pasta with tomato-based sauces.
