It would also be simply sensational with red meat dishes of kangaroo or venison with garlic mash.
Growing Conditions: Malbec is a variety that originates in the south-west of France. Plantings of Malbec in Australia are quite small, and the variety is normally used, as in France, for blending purposes. The grapes used to make this wine were grown at our Heathcote vineyard in central Victoria.
Winemaker: Geoff Alexander
