For the first time, Australian Malbecs will be the focus of the next regular tasting by the Wine & Viticulture Journal.
Since the resurgence of Malbec in Australia about a decade ago, thanks largely to Argentina for its revival of interest in the variety around the world, the number of straight varietal wines on the market has grown.
So too has the number of regions producing those straight varietals, with the main producing areas of Langhorne Creek and Clare Valley now joined by Heathcote, Margaret River, Swan Valley, Hunter Valley, Padthaway and Macedon Ranges to name a few.
The Wine & Viticulture Journal’s tasting will endeavor to provide a snapshot of the diversity in styles of varietal Malbec currently being produced in Australia.
Producers interested in submitting a wine to the tasting should get in touch with Hans Mick ([email protected]) in the first instance by no later than next Monday, 22 July.
The results will be published in the Spring 2019 issue of the Wine & Viticulture Journal.
