About The Wine

One of the most famous vineyards in the Clare Valley is the source for this delicious, red-blooded Malbec from Gestalt.

The Armagh vineyard is the heart and soul of Clare Valley icon, Jim Barry Wines. This vineyard yields fruit of great intensity, this is ripe and voluptuous and straight up great to drink. 

Mike Bennie awarded it 92 points with great praise for the wine's style.

If you're looking for a good value, delicious version of Aussie Malbec, this is a great bet.

About Gestalt

This funky young label is the brainchild of Craig Turnbull and Anthony Pearce.

Gestalt (meaning an organised whole considered to be greater than the sum of its parts) is about balanced, youthful wines sourced from small organically grown vineyards around South Australia.

Whether it is whacky blends of uncool varieties such as Savagnin and Petit Manseng or pure single vineyard, single varietal expression, there is something about these wines which make you want to keep coming back for more!

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"A dynamic project here, now seemingly stretching a little further each year. It’s been great to see. Slurpy red of hearty, deep, dark berry-cherry fruit character, some earthiness and a presence of dried herbs or undergrowth-like character. It’s immediately appealing from the sweet-savoury mesh of aromas, settles in the palate in a soft float of inky fruit and stretches well on fresh acidity and a velvety pull of thick tannin. Generous red with vitality on its side. Very good, you’d say." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

A dramatic bouquet with raspberry, lavender, dried redcurrant and potpourri, jostling for position with mace, cumin, and coriander seed. The silky, rich palate opens with a burst of juicy berries and finishes spicy. Blueberry, blackberry and blackcurrant yield to anise and mocha, with spices loitering around all the while. A wonderfully slurpy entry resolves to a precise, grippy finish. Yum.
