Ray Jordan review

Ferngrove Black label Frankland River malbec 2015 ($20)

Malbec seems to have found a home in Frankland River. This shows many of the characters of this excellent variety – floral notes, spices and mulberry with even a trace of fennel and licorice. It stacks up mighty well as a varietal. Integrated palate and excellent mouthfeel.

Score: 90/100                                     Cellar: 5 years

Wine Guide 2016

This variety is best known as a blending component yet when the vintage is good it gets the chance to strut its stuff as this excellent wine does. It’s a wine of great poise and expression with spices and dark chocolate and fruit intensity evident on the nose and palate. Still a little closed now but it will open up with further ageing.
