About

As James Halliday observed in his overview of Australia’s Top 10 Best New Wineries for 2017, “Ruckus is one to watch.”

Their focus on obtaining the best clones of the varieties they want to work with has produced some excellent wines in only a short space of time.

For their Merlot, they went to Bordeaux, for the Malbec in this blend, they went to Argentina, the modern home of the variety.

The result is a stunning single vineyard blend made from their home in Wrattonbully. Shiraz and Malbec working together in harmony. A great first release of this wine and one that will surely secure their place as one of Wrattonbully’s future stars.

What It Tastes Like

Black cherry compote, herbs and earth. Surprisingly lifted, guess that’s the Malbec talking. Long threads of savoury tannins and slick mouthful of fruit. Sour cherry finish, and a lot lighter on its feet than I was expecting. Not your classic SA bruiser, this has a bit of elegance to it. Great job all round.
