2021 Wyjup Collection Malbec
Deep maroon in colour with purple - almost magenta hues. The aromatics are packed full of spicy blue fruits, dark plum and flashes of pomegranate, dark chocolate and gravelly tones. The palate is a celebration of the Malbec variety, super vibrant with a sweet mid-palate and masculine big smooth tannins. The richness and earthiness of the Malbec shine through on the finish.

96 points - "Comes off a tiny vineyard once blended with cabernets. But then Garland saw something in the 2020 vintage and decided to make something from 2021. This is a very small production wine. It has the colour and flavour intensity of the variety, but a little bit of shiraz has been added to fill out the palate a little. Gets about one-third new oak. It's firm but fleshy. A really beautiful example of the variety. The perfumes are exquisite." - Ray Jordan, WA Wine Guide 2023
