Ironcloud The Alliance Cabernet Malbec 2020
A Cab Malbec blend from the Ferguson Valley in Western Australia, the vines planted in 1999 and 2009 respectively. Fermentation was discrete, with maturation in new and older French oak, and just over 2,000 bottles made. A deep, dark maroon colour, the nose exhibits notes of cassis, bay leaves, aniseed, rose petals, chocolate, coffee beans and tobacco leaves. There is complexity evident, even at this early stage on a supple palate with silky tannins, a lingering finish and a gentle fade. Drink now for eight years.
