Squid Jibbly Wines Malbec 2016

Squid Jibbly is a brand you may not have heard of, essentially it's a few mates in various roles in and around the industry who had a little play with some fruit out of the Clare Valley and Langhorne Creek  to produce this playful little number. 

Carries a lo-fi kinda vibe to it, a wine about youth, fruit, and unencumbered from artifice, or oak. It's fresh, with perhaps just a suggestion of a small amount of stem. 

Light of palate, fleet-footed perhaps; carries the classic dusky violet of the variety, but is about freshness and vitality. Good graphite tannin structure leaves a fine coating across the palate. Length goes alright, if not possessing the greatest depth. Fun to drink, you'd reach for a second glass - or more - for sure. 91
