SS Shiraz Malbec
The new 2019 'Silver Series' from Castelli has a richness and spicy opulence of Great Southern Shiraz with the earthy muscularity and structure of Malbec.
The aromatics are dominated by lifted dark blue fruits, such as mulberries and spiced plums with sprinkles of red berries overlaid. These flavours continue onto the medium bodied palate, where the structure of the Malbec comes to the fore – ripe, rich and structured tannins of good weight and length. This is a fruit-driven style designed for medium-term drinking with the oak playing a supporting role; however, the structure will allow the wine to be confidently cellared over the next 10 years.
The 2019 vintage is a 51% Shiraz, 49% Malbec blend.
