Wendouree Cabernet Malbec 1989

Tired, past its peak, but still very complex and with an acceptable amount of acidity
I drank it over two days and I had aspected it to get oxidised at day 2 when it was a more enjoyable sip than the day before

Señorío de P. Peciña Crianza Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2013

This is a fantastic Rioja that is both richly endowed with fruit yet true to its roots. I’m very particular with Rioja’s and largely disinterested in anything modern. To me, this is a more “clean” example when compared to LdH. For the record, I love both. — a month ago

@Stuart Scheff Noted! I’ll keep an eye out for it and swoop it up next time I see it.

Wendouree Malbec 1991

I've always wanted to taste an old malbec from them
Still embarrassingly young and fresh
Kaleidoscopic nose
Hard to describe mouthful
We start with eucalyptus, then berries of any kind, from raspberry to blueberries or blackcurrant
Leather, cinnamon, star anise, soya, graphite, gunpowder, coriander, curry
Intensity, vibrancy and length
I honestly am so bloody curious to see this in decades
I keep thinking of Bordeaux when I drink Wendouree maybe cause they freeze the time
It starts the hunt for more
