Wendouree Cabernet Malbec 2011

I have been cellaring Wendouree’s wines for a few years now, and tasting too few of them.  The 2011 is a poor vintage in most of south eastern Australia and therefore seemed a good candidate to start a correction with.  More Wendouree reviews will follow.  In the glass, the 2011 cabernet malbec proves quite approachable with aromatics of cedar and gentle cassis.  The palate is medium bodied and presents as approachable and balanced.  To the extent Wendouree has a reputation for a more rustic style that comes good with age, this wine is not an example of that.  This wine has entered its drinking window and should drink well for another five to eight years.  Rating: Good to Very Good.  Abv: not recorded. Price: $60+.
