2016 Single Vineyard Eastern Ranges Cabernet Malbec

This small-batch project allows our winemakers to create unique, vintage-specific wines that highlight the best fruit from vineyards owned by the Barry family. 

The Single Vineyard Cabernet Malbec comes from 1997 planted Cabernet Sauvignon and 1998 planted Malbec at our Lodge Hill property on the Eastern Ranges of the Clare Valley. This is a nod to the wines Jim Barry was making in the 60’s and 70’s where Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec were often blended.


This wine is a deep red with a crimson hue. Lifted aromas of blue fruits combined with hints of mint and tobacco. A very structural wine offering flavours of bright blueberry and mulberry fruits with black olive savoury notes. Fresh cherry and plum characters are provided by the addition of Malbec in this superb blend. This is a wine of great length, with well integrated savoury tannins.
