Description

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!

James Halliday 2019 ”Violets, boysenberries, redcurrant and leather. Bright and characterful at once. Sweet and vibrant through the mouth, dry and firm through the finish. Mid-weight. In lovely form.”   Gold Medal 2018 World Wine Championships – Tastings.com   Gold Medal Wine Showcase Magazine 2017   Gold Medal China Wine & Spirits Awards 2017   Gold Medal Tastings.com World Wine Challenge 2017   94 Points Wine Showcase Magazine 2018 “Delightful plum bouquet with spicy lift. Solid plum and fruit flavours that are supple in the mouth with lovely grippy tannins”   92 Points/Exceptional Tastings.com 23/05/2018 ‘Nearly opaque deep purple color. Toasty, fruity aromas of boysenberry pie a la mode, spiced toffee, hint of alpine herbs, and candied sage and gherkin with a satiny, bright, fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, involved, long creme brulee, white chocolate craisins, pickled beets and melon, and dusty minerals and slate finish with fine, silky tannins and moderate oak. A juicy, spicy palate-pleasing malbec from down under.”   Gold Medal AWC Vienna
