Wine: Cape Domainé Malbec 2018
Region: Margaret River

Review: I’ve talked a lot of smack about Margaret River malbec in the past, I’ll be the first to admit that. For a region with strong similarities to Bordeaux, you would think that malbec would be a bit more prominent. Let down after let down had left me leaving M/River malbec to a blending only grape varietal. This wine may just have given me hope! My god this drinks well! Medium body & tannins allow for this wine’s delicious fruits to shine, while providing the structure necessary for an all round good experience. This wine is great for both the malbec novice & the malbec lover alike!
