Vinaceous Voodoo Moon

Vinaceous Voodoo Moon Malbec

Vinaceous Voodoo Moon

With Margaret River showing such propensity with Cabernet and Cab-Merlot blends, it make sense that this ‘lesser’ Bordeaux grape would do well here too. From a single vineyard in Wilyabrup, the fruit is basket pressed and matured for 15 months in French and American oak barriques, 25% new. This gives a rich, weighty palate of dense bramble fruit, softly textured tannins and a long chocolatey finish. Cool label too.

Dark, deep purple in colour and has a brooding and perfumed bouquet. The palate is rich, layered and textured – really fills the mouth with its immense power and weight, but retains its finesse with long, soft integrated tannins.
Hand-picked, open fermented Malbec from Wilyabrup, Margaret River. Basket pressed into some 25% new oak barriques (French & American) to finish fermentation. 14 – 15 months maturation in the same oak. Vinified, fined, blended and bottled by Vinaceous Wines.
Famous as one of the traditional Bordeaux red grape varieties, Malbec is grown all over the world especially Argentina and now increasingly in Australia. Valued for its amazing depth of colour, generosity of fruit expression and fullness of flavour, Malbec has found the growing conditions of Margaret River ideally suited to producing full bodied wines of great depth and character – unsurprising considering the similar climatic conditions experienced by Bordeaux and Margaret River.

The Vinaceous Voodoo Moon will cellar and improve for 8 – 10 years, but equally appeals as an immediate drink – match with roast meats, braises and mature cheeses. Approximately 2,500 dozen produced.

Opportunist Shiraz

The Opportunist Shiraz

The Opportunist Shiraz by One Chain Vineyards

The wine has an aromatic bouquet of ripe fruits, cherries and blackcurrants, with notes of freshly ground coffee, dark chocolate, peppermint, liquorice and subtle pepper. Thick and smooth with good balanced fruit weight.

An energetic, vibrant nose of delicious, herbal cassis and spice followed by a succulent palate of dark fruits, mocha and grilled meats. Lovely balance, intense yet not over-powering.

Fruit for the Opportunist Shiraz comes from 3 separate blocks of the same vineyard in the historic Langhorne Creek region. All blocks are trellised and spur pruned though the trellis height vary dependent on frost risk. Soils are a mix of sandy loam and darker red soils with moderate fertility. Yields are low to moderate with good canopies that allow for a lengthy ripening period.

As for all of our wines, the fruit for the Opportunist is picked on the way up to ripeness rather than on the way down. This way we achieve freshness and energy but not at the expense of flavour. We retain as many whole berries as possible to increase vibrancy and succulence. Winemaking is simple and is followed by 8 months on oak to increase texture and varietal expression. rate fertility. Yields are low to moderate with good canopies that allow for a lengthy ripening period.

Good with beef stews, entrecôte or a crispy Thai beef salad.
