Hand Crafted by Geoff Hardy Malbec 2016
Langhorne Creek Malbec done well. Lavish, purple fruit with a plush open, modern Aussie form. Really purple with an oak sweetness. Slightly sausagey purple fruit on the palate, with just a little bitterness. This is a very easy, generous and round wine but the balance is good too. Likeable red.
Best drinking: Good now, and for at least five years, maybe even 10. 17.5/20, 91/100. 14%, $30. Would I buy it? I’d go a few glasses.
