Q Wine Reviews

These Clandestine Vineyards wines are a tidy bunch. Sourced from Margaret River, this Malbec will mop up a steak or hearty meal with ease.Peppery and earthy, licorice and spices get things moving. Get in deep with plums and mulberries. The more I investigate the more it tells me it is a meat kind of wine. Rustic feels with black pepper, it finishes long with a sapping dryness. Another glass please. Drink to five years.

Huon Hooke - The Real Review

Deep, bold red/purple colour. The aromas include talc, berries, peppermint and forest undergrowth, the palate savoury, drying, soft and young but also gently-structured and approachable. It’s slightly flat in the middle and drying – a minor quibble. Good value

Shanteh Wong - Wine Pilot

Yes it sure is Malbec. Loads of pigment and intensity and that follows through on the palate. Blackberries and big fat blueberries, violets and purple florals. Some sweeter spices like nutmeg and vanilla bean that sit nicely with the density of fruit and sappy fine tannins. At this price point what’s not to love?
