Western Range Wines Cabernet Malbec

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Bright purple-red; clean blackcurrant and raspberry aromas lead into a smooth, light to medium-bodied palate, with clean, juicy fruit flavours, but not a lot of structure. A blend of 65 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and 35 per cent Malbec.

The best red wine we tried from this new winery, located in the Perth Hills in Western Australia. We loved its youthful, herbal, earthy smells, its intense, juicy red and black fruit flavours, and its fine, tight, grippy tannins. It's a deceptively elegant wine, too: easy to drink now (better with food than on its own), but with enough concentration and depth of flavour to see it develop in the bottle for a few years yet, if you've got the willpower to stash it away and forget about it.

This range of wines might possibly have the ugliest labels in Australia. Now I feel bad, so I'd best remind you that it is the stuff inside that counts and the Western Range wines, from vineyards around the Perth Hills, are terrific. I particularly like this wine with its 35% malbec, an underrated (including by meÑsee Winespeak) grape variety that adds colour and acid to the blend. I'd cellar this for a year or so and then it will really surprise and delight. Just make sure you serve it blind.
