Named after an historical surveyor’s geographic marker overlooking our vineyard, Glen Garvald wines represent our varietal and replanting response to climate change.
Made in the current Valley vogue-ish ‘Light Dry Red’ style, this rare fusion of Merlot and Malbec as a stand-alone wine delivers intense varietal fruit fragrance with line and poise captured in a medium-bodied framework.
The steady hand of the Merlot forms the basis of a plush and plump mid-palate fruit weight while the bright and effusive Malbec contributes lifted floral top notes in concert with blueberry-like tartness and palate defining tannins which overall defy its ‘low octane’ body.
Juicy red fruits, fine acidity and tannin. As a style, it has been designed to deliver immediacy and impact for immediate enjoyment however the provenance of the vineyard suggests that it should also deliver the rewards of patient cellaring.
