Grape Variety - 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Malbec
Region - 100% Clare Valley
Colour - Dark Red/Black
Bouquet - Our first release of our Cabernet Malbec blend under the London Calling label, hits the mark with plump dark fruits, violets, leafy notes and liquorice. The juicy and savoury aromas are created to entice and excite giving an indication of the plush and rich flavours that await.
Palate - This wine displays the complimentary synergy that works with blending these two varieties. Cabernet brings structure with big tannins and classic varietal aspects of blackcurrant, cassis, liquorice and herbal notes. Malbec provides juicy plump plum and a mid-palate richness that entwines and harnesses the structure given by Cabernet. Together they produce a wine with rounded mouthfeel and continues to delight the senses.
General - Sourced from within our own estate grown vineyards using selected parcels, gives us the balance and structure we are striving for. Crushed and left to ferment on skins for 15 to 20 days allows us to extract maximum flavour, tannins and structure. Pressed and transferred to barrel to finish secondary fermentation and held in oak for 12 months, allows the wines to develop complexity while retaining rich fruit varietal characters.
Serve With - Wood fired prosciutto and goats cheese pizza.
