2020 Koonowla Single Vineyard Malbec

2020 Koonowla
Single Vineyard Malbec

Malbec is one of Clare Valley’s unsung heroes, considered the secret ingredient in many of the region’s greatest red blends.

Here, on its own, we see why. Sourced from our beloved Bass Hill Vineyard, we have shown utmost care, from harvest to the glass, in showcasing the variety’s unique qualities. Classic purple colour, signature violet aroma, blueberry flavours and mild peppery spice. Faithfully crafted to a medium-bodied style, this is Clare Valley Malbec in its finest voice.

Aroma

Signature violet-like floral notes with fresh purple plum.

Palate
