Warrabilla Reserve Malbec 2019 from Rutherglen
Such purity of fruit on the nose. On the palate – massive – all I can think is blackberry jam – that’s it, it’s what it tastes like! Big, black and blue, heaps of fruit and sweetness. Maybe lacking a hint of acid. Just plush like a soft leather couch. Stewed plums, baked cherries. Not something everyone would sign up for, I’m sure.
Day 2 and it’s completely and I mean completely different. It’s like it’s transformed from grape juice to wine overnight with exposure to oxygen. Solid wine TBH – I now really like it. One to put down for 10+ years and seriously enjoy.
If you drink **MUST BE DECANTED FOR 10+ hours. Day one you could’ve poured it down the sink, day two and it’s 90% of what it could be and delicious- what a difference a day makes. Sometimes all we need is some extra time to become all that we can be.
@balancewineco standard? Honestly could be, ultimately not right point in time for it and so big would divide people..NO
