2022 Voodoo Moon Malbec
A blend of Frankland River 51% + Margaret River 49 % Fruit sourced from two single sites has resulted in one very special wine.
Famous as one of the traditional Bordeaux red grape varieties, malbec is grown all over the world, especially throughout Argentina, and now increasingly in Australia. Valued for its amazing depth of colour, generosity of fruit expression and fullness of flavour, malbec has found the growing conditions in Western Australia’s Great Southern and Margaret River ideally suited to producing full bodied wines of great depth and character.
The Voodoo Moon used traditional winemaking techniques to achieve full colour and extraction. The wine is matured in 100% French oak barriques for 10 months before final blending is completed. The resulting wine is dark, deep purple in colour and has a brooding and perfumed bouquet. The palate is rich, layered and textured -really fills the mouth with its immense power and weight, but retains its finesse with long, soft integrated tannins.
The Vinaceous Voodoo Moon will cellar and improve for 8 -10 years, but equally appeals as an immediate drink – match with roast meats, braises and mature cheeses.
