Knappstein Cabernet Malbec 2021


A Cab dominant blend with its slightly less traditional partner, at least in Aussie terms, Malbec. Purple/magenta, this is taut, tight and well poised. Notes of black fruits to the fore, woodsmoke, cranberries and delicatessen meats with a lingering hint of florals. There is good structure to be found here, with some austerity, firm tannins and good focus. The palate sees rich chocolatey notes emerge more and more. The wine should continue to drink beautifully for half a dozen years at least.
