Malbec 2017 – Black Market Deal #37045
- Rich, full-bodied
I’ve often found myself singing the praises of Argentinian malbec, for its gutsy charm and fruit-drenched fun. How does the same variety from WA compare? Very well, as it happens. It’s got all of that plush intensity that you’d want, with lashings of dark berries and chocolate, rounded off by elegant oak spice and fine tannins. It’s a little brighter and more approachable than it’s South American counterparts, but it will still handle your steak nicely.
What is a Black Market deal?
Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article – absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Here's where cool climate varietals really come to play in WA. Slightly cooler again than Manjimup, you'll find the best of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Semillon in this relatively remote region. A recent find in the scheme of things, the first vines were only planted here in 1977. Such a lush region forested with famous Karri trees, that only fifteen per cent of its area is available for viticulture. Believe it or not though, there are now over 50 cellar doors here! Enjoy every drop you can find from Pemberton, and if you're lucky enough, match it with the local marron, truffles or trout.
