Blueberries | Mulberry | Violets “It’s amazing! Blueberry pie and ice cream! I can feel it running down my throat!” – Roald Dahl

SKU: ZF17VBMA71D1 Category: Tags: , ,

On the vine, our perfectly round, plump and violet-purple Malbec looks like blueberries. Crush, ferment and pour into a glass… it smells like blueberries. If it looks like a blueberry, smells like a blueberry and tastes like a blueberry pie then Violet Beauregard it must be. Best consumed without Veruca Salt or Augustus Gloop…


Don’t say we didn’t warn you… every glass will jump out at you with the smells and tastes of fresh macerated Blueberries, raspberries, Mulberry and Violets with a hint of muddled mint; Yum!

94 Points – Wine Showcase Jul/Aug 2019 ‘Lovely dense inky, oaky aromas on the nose. Glorious rich and chocolaty palate layered with mulberry fruit.”

91 Points – The Wine Front – Campbell Mattinson – 26/02/2019 “It seems simple, fresh and fruity at first but as it breathes the frameworks shows through, in a good way. Thin sheets of tannin, fresh acidity, a general tidiness, a dryness to the finish. The back label suggests that it tastes of blueberry and blackberry pie: add mint and gunmetal and there you have it. It’s uncomplicated; it drinks well; it has just enough character.”

4.5 Stars – Winestate Magazine ‘New Release’ May/June 2019 4 Stars – Winestate Magazine ‘McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, Fleurieu & Surrounds’ May/Jun Edition “Perfumed dark berry bouquet with a thread of menthol-like characters. Beautifully fragnant fruit flavours supported by firm prickly tannins. Al classic Malbec!”

Tastings World Value Wine Challenge 2018 ” Deep purple color. Aromas of charred meats and wild berry with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a sleek, medium-length bay laurel, vanilla, and toast with herbed butter finish with light oak. Australian earthy flare grounds this fruity malbec; enjoy with casual steak or lamb.”

5 Stars/94 Points – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit – Mar 2019 “The wine combines fruit richness and spicy complexity, showing black/blueberry, plum, hazelnut and mint chocolate characters on the nose, leading to a wonderfully weighted palate that is velvety and expansive. The wine offers terrific fruit power as well as structure and length. At its best: now to 2025”
