Allegiance Wines The Artisan Clare Valley Malbec 2016

Varieties

Malbec

Region

Clare Valley, SA

Wine

making notes

Malbec is one of the six grapes allowed in the blend of red Bordeaux wine. It has also become one of the benchmark wines from Argentina. The Artisan is an outstanding example demonstrating that the beautiful Clare Valley in South Australia can also produce world class Malbec.

Colour

Brick red with a fresh purple hue.

Nose

Aromas of blackcurrant and blueberry fruit are intertwined with attractive herbal and floral notes.

Palate

The palate is dripping with dark berry freshness and more-ish chewy tannins.  This is an extremely well balanced wine that will reward careful cellaring for 6+ years.

Reviews

94 points (5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

This is richly fruited and brooding with ripe blackberry, spiced plum, bay leaf, hazelnut and cocoa characters on the nose, followed by a succulent palate that is impressively weighted and fleshy. The wine displays excellent fruit intensity and silky texture, beautifully framed by fine tannins, finishing delectably long. At its best: now to 2022.

 

93 points - Stephen Read, Wine Matrix

A good example of this variety, dark purple in colour, clear and bright. Strong aromas of sweet blackcurrants, mint, cigar box and herbal notes along with tomato bush add to the complex bouquet. Sweet blackcurrant along with tight tannins and good acid balance this complex wine.  Finishing up long leaving the mouth clean and fresh. Cellar potential is 5+ years to get the best from this wine.
