Castelli Shiraz Malbec (Mount Barker, WA)
This wine combines the richness and opulence of Great Southern Shiraz with the muscularity and structure of Malbec. The aromatics are dominated by spicy dark fruits, such as mulberries and satsuma plums with sprinkles of red berries overlaid. These flavours continue onto the medium bodied palate, where the structure of the Malbec comes to the fore – ripe, structured tannins of good weight and length. This is a fruit driven style designed for early to medium term drinking with the oak playing a supporting role; however the structure will allow the wine to be confidently cellared over the next 10 years.
