Galah Clare Valley Cabernet Malbec

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2002 Vintage) says
Stephen George must have exercised Jedi self control to hold back for a full decade the signature blend of the Clare Valley, from one of the most legendary vineyards of the region, sourced primarily from the “newer” Wendouree plantings of 1911. Such a pedigree promises great things, but even this does nothing to prepare you for the youthful vibrancy that this wine emanates from every pore. At a full ten years of age, almost to the day, it still has a perfume of violets, and cabernet’s classic signature of redcurrants and capsicum. There’s Clare mint and leaf in spades, and a slowly building bottle complexity of roast capsicum. Wendouree’s telltale, firm, finely structured, mineral tannins hold forth, and will continue to do so for at least five years yet. An effortless wine of medium body and low alcohol. For all it represents, it’s ridiculously underpriced.

Malbec was recommended by the great Max Schubert to make Clare cabernet more complete by adding a layer of juicy fruit to finesse the powerful tannins and berry fruit.

Developing slowly but surely; the tannins are still to folly resolve and soften, but there is adequate fruit to tide the wine through.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
A solid wine, but the sometimes ferocious tannins are nowhere to be seen; this is medium- to full-bodied, well-balanced, and will mature gracefully.
