Grey Sands Malbec 2018

97+ Points - Stuart McCloskey "My first Tassie Malbec and what a fabulous debut. The bouquet is deeply serious with savoury and oceanic aromatics from sea kelp, oyster shell (an overwhelming sense of marine) leading to pen ink and violet.   There is lovely ripeness and brisk acidity, translating into a powerful but fresh wine. There is some fruit opulence with deep plum leading to an assortment of black fruits. There’s a little fresh pencil shaving, violet, blueberry and a wealth of minerals… It's compact in stature, concentrated and balanced perfectly. Tannins in abundance, but these are ripe and work wonders with the fruit. To summarise, one of the most enjoyable Malbecs I have sampled for a long time with hidden power and concentration. The flavours last forever and I love the salinity on the finish. A serious Malbec which will last 10-15 years in the cellar. Decant for 2-4 hours and best served using Zalto Bordeaux glassware”

Grey Sands

Tasmanian wines have been one of the greatest discoveries of the past few years for The Vinorium and Grey Sands with their tagline "wines made to last" have been a fantastic addition to the range.

Bob and Rita Richter bought the Grey Sands vineyard back in the 80s, following a tour of the European wine regions where they were inspired to try growing grapes in the coolest part of Australia. This was back before the internet and never having visited Tasmania, they were forced to research their choice using the one book about Australia in their local library!

Based in the Tamar Valley, in a scenic location just a short drive from the beach, they began by planting Pinot Gris and Merlot whilst the local industry were focusing on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Bob was convinced, from his time in Europe, that there were many alternative varieties which would thrive in Tasmania and we have to agree with that. Stu declared the 2018 Pinot Gris "without doubt the best new world Pinot Gris to have ever passed my lips."
