95 Points - James Halliday
Bleasdale have long been regarded one of Australia's leading makers and advocates of Malbec having grown the variety since the late 1880's. While Malbec is rarely seen as a standalone wine in Australia, Bleasdale have been championing the varietal for many years, consistently delivering impressive results.
This 2020 Bleasdale Second Innings Malbec is another a delicious red delivering plenty of blackberry, plum and red berry flavours with a touch of olive, subtle toasty oak and spice. Finishing soft and round with velvety tannins, this is a versatile red that offers super value drinking at this price.
"95 Points. Part estate-grown fruit, part contract-grown; open fermented with 20% whole berries, on skins 7-10 days; matured for 9 months in French puncheons and hogsheads (10% new). Bright colour. A highly aromatic bouquet with the particular spice - half pepper, half clove - of Bleasdale Vineyards. The palate is a broad church of plum, blackberry and red cherry - and a hint of clove on the finish. Outstanding value. $22. 14% alc. Drink by: 2032. Screwcap"- James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.
