Heartland Wines, First Release, Malbec, Langhorne Creek, 2016

This wine has incredible immediate appeal: Smoked ham hocks, spice nibs (primarily clove, anise), plum, bluestone/gravel, blueberry and creamy malt. Cereal, crispy corn kernels, bacon, pan jus, dried blueberries and cigar smoke. Smooth, even, refined palate with dried fruits, purple flowers and that slightly savoury, rustic meaty goodness. The long finish of gossamer tannins promote good chary protein matching drinkability. Delicious.

RRP: $50
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 18/20
