IronCloud Alliance Cabernet Malbec 2021


From the Ferguson Valley in Western Australia, south of Perth and just in from Bunbury, the Cabernet was planted in 1999 and the Malbec a decade later. The colour of this Cab Malbec blend is a deep red. The nose is a little earthy with coffee grinds and a graphite note. Dry herbs, black fruits, dark chocolate, soy and aniseed. This is concentrated and yet finely balanced, with a better than medium length finish support by firm tannins. A wine with rather burly shoulders, from the contribution by the Malbec, one suspects. This will drink nicely over the next ten to twelve years.
