Quarisa ‘Q’ South Eastern Australia Malbec 2017

Malbec from Australia - Other
Review Date : 29-Nov-2018
Very dark, deep, near impenetrable black-hued purple-ruby colour, a little lighter on the rim, very youthful in appearance. The nose is full and voluminous with accessible and up-front, bold aromas of ripe black berried fruits with black plums, along with an amalgam of herb detail and a subtle array of spices, unfolding a little eucalyptus. The aromatics grow in depth and intensity with aeration. Fullish bodied, the palate has sweetly rich and plush, juicy flavours of ripe blackberry and black plum fruit with boysenberries, spices and suggestions of herbs. The fruit is mouthfilling with a deep and rounded heart, which is supported by fine, grainy tannin structure and extraction, and integrated acidity. Some alcoholic power underlines the fruit, and the wine carries to a fulsome, long finish. This is a plush and juicy, powerful Malbec with ripe flavours of blackberries, plums and boysenberries with spice notes and fine-grained tannin structure. Match with barbecued, grilled and roasted red meats over the next 4-5 years. A blend of 86% Malbec and 14% Durif, fruit 50% from Heathcote, 36% Clare Valley and the 14% Durif from N.S.W., fermented to 14.7% alc., with 20% of the wine aged 8 months in 2 y.o. American oak hogsheads, the remaining 80% aged in tank with French oak staves. 18.5-/20 Nov 2018 RRP $20.00
