Collards Shanty Block Malbec

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The 2002 vintage was made from second-crop vines in the estate vineyard at Henderson and oak-aged. One of the country's most enjoyable Malbecs, it's richly coloured, with a fragrant bouquet of raspberry, plum and spice. Warm and supple, slightly earthy and chocolatey, with sweet-fruit characters and gentle tannins, it shows good ripeness, complexity and depth.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
The dark, deeply flavoured 2001 vintage was made from first-crop vines, estate-grown at Henderson, and oak-aged for seven months. Mouthfilling and well-rounded, with great drinkability, it's less earthy and rustic than some other Malbecs, with rich plum and red berry flavours.
