Tim Adams Cabernet Malbec 2016 (Clare Valley)
Cabernet Sauvignon has long been recognised as an excellent, consistent variety that performs well in the Clare Valley. The addition of Malbec adds to the complexity of the mid-palate contributing violet, mulberry, added texture and richness. The result is a full-bodied wine with generous chalky tannins. 2016 has been lauded as one of the great vintages, with red wines benefiting from the excellent ripening conditions, providing extraordinary fruit flavours.
Twenty-four months in French oak provides complexity, depth and balance to our house style which is dominated by juicy ripe plum and fresh blackcurrant and blackberry aromas and flavours. Feel content cellaring this Tim Adams Cabernet Malbec for at least ten years in good conditions. We recommend decanting a few hours before enjoying. The wine has not been cold stabilised, so a harmless crust may form with time.
