2016 The Independence
Our second release of a Malbec under our Flagship Range, The Independence, showcases the traditional French variety, Malbec, usually seen in a supporting role.
Our first vintage scores 96/100 with the Halliday Wine Companion team & we're confident this new release will cement its reputation as one of the best cool-climate Malbecs on the market.
On the nose, it offers black plum, blackberry, cocoa & sweet tobacco. On the palate plush fruit, full-bodied structure & firm tannins that Malbec is known for are balanced by wine-making craftsmanship to create a wine that is power & finesse in equal balance.
Pair it with lean game, a blue cheese burger, a steak cooked over firm & hard cheeses.
Crafted over six years before release, The Independence will cellar for an additional 15 years & reward you for your patience.
