Ferngrove King Malbec 2016

I was all too ready to dismiss this, it seemingly offering a reductive, sulphurous pong on first opening. It was meaty, gamey - smelling more like a Pinotage.

This was just in need of some air. From the reductive to the sublime, now more like an old school Grenache, singing its delicious Berry coulis tune. 

Seduction becomes its play, the soft texture bringing with it the red currant and nigh-raspberry flavour married to a graphite like tannin. 

What a transformation! 91
