2014 Ferngrove Limited Release Malbec

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Here's a malbec of elegance that would be great at your next family BBQ. There's a mountain of sweetly-fruited black and blue berries on the nose, with a tempting sprinkle of soft spice in the mix. The palate is more medium-bodied with rich fruit flavours, a solid line of tannins, and a spiced plum finish. Lovely stuff at the price, so dip your toe into the malbec waters.

Reviews and Accolades


"For something a little different for the wine connoisseur why not malbec? Winemaker Kim Horton has tonnes of experience making this variety and this is a rich, fruity affair, with lots of blackberry, plum and spice flavours before a long, textural finish."

Rob Geddes MW (2011 Vintage) says
Very dep colour with initially savoury arommas before the jubey sweet almost confestionalry black fruit.The youthful palate is built around ripe fruit with a modern tannin acid back drip. Up front black plum fruit with medium plus weight moderate to firm tannins. Medium long.

Ray Jordan (2011 Vintage) says
It’s inky, dark reddy black with purple hues, so typical of Malbec from this region. Has all the goodies of dark plums and blackberry with a spicy lift. It’s also immensely robust with firmish tannins and plenty of oak in support. Rich sweet fruit finishes with so much flavour. A nice alternative to traditional varietals.
