Houghton Jack Mann Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec

This Cabernet blend honours the legendary Jack Mann contribution to Houghton, serving remarkable 51 consecutive vintages. The passion, creativity and unrelenting search of unique flavour of the great man is portrayed in the exceptional elegance, fruit flavour and power of this wine. With over a decade in bottle, the 2000's fruit intensity is in decline with the fine, soft tannins still balancing the palate for an excellent finish. A powerful yet complex wine with grace and generous style; befitting a legendary character.

Claymore London Calling Cabernet Malbec

Inviting and complex aromatics welcome you into this wine; brambly, leafy notes backed up by deep dark fruit with subtle spice and char interplay on the nose. There is a deceptive density to this wine's aroma that hints at what lies beyond. The 2016 release builds on that breakthrough style - the wine shows plush generosity but there is a layering of flavours and complexity to this vintage that invites not just a second but third look. Generous, accessible primary fruit sits pretty up front but let the wine breathe and suddenly these dry, fine and lightly chewy tannins build on the back palate, lending a savoury edge to the dark fruit finish of this baby.

Aged in Bordeaux-coopered French oak barrels for 16 months, this amazing Houghton C.W. Ferguson Cabernet Malbec is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with 13% Malbec grapes. This led to the creation of a purple red coloured wine lined by garnet hues. The luxurious bouquet exhibits scintillating aromas of mulberries, black cherries, dark chocolate and cassis coupled with hints of cedar, spices and vanillin oak. The sharp and full-flavoured palate packs complex flavours of bramble fruit, dark chocolate and ground coffee, which are supported by fine and structured tannins to provide great length and density to the wine. The finale is rich, satisfying and perfectly balanced. With a cellaring potential of 10 years, this delightful Cab Malbec blend tastes excellent with roast lamb, beef burritos, and baked potatoes. 

West Cape Howe Regional Hannah's Hill Cabernet Malbec

West Cape Howe Regional Hannah's Hill Cabernet Malbec is an inky and dense crimson coloured wine with a purple red hue. The wine opens with intense aromas of boysenberry and blackcurrant, lifted by violets and dry, savoury spice. With grapes sourced from Frankland River and Mount Barker, this Cabernet Merlot blend features a great flavour and texture profile on the palate. The dark berry flavours are balanced by drying tannins and well-integrated oak, giving this wine great length. A flavoursome wine with depth of fruit and a spicy finish, the wine can be cellared for 6 years, but tastes better when served young. Pair it with smoky cured beef, chilli con carne, or Spaghetti Bolognaise.
