Cabernet Malbec

Cabernet Malbec

$50.00

SC Pannell

The idea of a Cabernet blend was born of chance when the neighbouring vineyard on Amery Road discovered that Malbec had been planted not Merlot as thought. A fortuitous mistake that allowed me to create an homage to dear friends and a favourite brand, Wendouree, and in particular, their blends. Both varieties originate in Frances’ South West and do strangely well in McLaren Vale, especially Cabernet Sauvignon, a variety that has always been important to the district and has some of the oldest vines in the Vale. What I find fascinating about this wine is a similarity to siblings from the same sub-region of Upper Tintara: Baked red earth and a sanguine edge that paints the landscape. The magical combination of a blend and a wine of place

  • Varietal - Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Size - 750mL
  • Alcohol Volume - 13.50%
