Taylor Made

Malbec 2015

This Malbec is full of intense dark fruit characters, a hint of plum stone and spicy notes of black pepper create a wine that is full to medium-bodied with a smooth finish.

More Information
Region Clare Valley
Colour At release, the wine is a deep, dark red with purple hues.
Nose There are lifted dark berry and raspberry aromas along with subtle spice, black pepper and mocha overtones from the oak maturation.
Palate This is a lush, mouth filling wine with intense black cherry, plum, raspberry and even a touch of pomegranate to the fruit flavours. The oak maturation brings attractive spice and mocha characters to the palate. The wine is well balanced with medium weight, smooth tannins and the finish is persistent and imminently enjoyable.
Oak Maturation American oak was employed for its ability to deliver robust characters. After maturing in oak for a period of 10 months, the wine was blended, filtered and bottled.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.

    This is the first time Taylors has released a straight malbec, and they’ve done so under their new Taylor Made brand. The wine is a dark, inky purple that dances around the palate with confidence, generosity and softness. Utterly beguiling. Juicy black cherry and mocha lead but don’t dominate, and a little spice adds flourish.

    This is the newest of the labels at Taylors Wines—they now have nine—and it is made up of three styles: a chardonnay, a pinot noir rose and this malbec from Clare Valley, Taylors' first ever straight malbec. It makes for good drinking, with its dark berry flavours, and is a fine partner for these juicy kebabs.
