West Cape Howe Wines

 

Current Releases – Accolades

 

2012 West Cape Howe Malbec              

  • GOLD - 'Best in Show' Red, 4 GOLDS awarded, SCOOP Magazine, Winter Tasting 2014

"Malbec is the plush juicy hug-in-a-glass grape variety most commonly found in Argentina. In WA's southern reaches, it's more gutsy, with bright lifted spice, dusty forest fruits, pine needles, and big chewy tannins, making it excellent for either extended cellaring or seriously rich food."
