Winemaker Notes

Valued for its amazing depth of color, generosity of fruit expression and fullness of flavor, Malbec has found the growing conditions of Margaret River ideally suited to producing full bodied wines of great depth and character - unsurprising considering the similar climatic conditions experienced by

Bordeaux and Margaret River. 

Sourced from a single vineyard in the sub-region of Wilyabrup, Margaret River from mature vines, the Voodoo Moon used traditional winemaking techniques to achieve full color and extraction. The wine is matured in 100% French oak barriques for 12-15 months before final blending is completed by Michael Kerrigan and Nick Stacy. The resulting wine is dark, deep purple in colour and has a brooding and perfumed bouquet. The palate is rich, layered and textured - really fills the mouth with its immense power and weight, but retains its finesse with long, soft integrated tannins. 

The Vinaceous Voodoo Moon will cellar and improve for 8 - 10 years, but

equally appeals as an immediate drink - match with roast meats, braises and

mature cheeses. 




Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 94
James Suckling

A very impressive, dark-fruited style with plenty of violets and an impression of richness from the outset. This nails the dark-plum and gently peppery style with a very smoothly delivered and concentrated palate that holds long and is full of flavor. Drink or hold.

Vinaceous, Australia
Image of winery

As Australia is a huge landmass, not all varieties grow in one place, so the Vinaceous concept is to think very carefully about the variety or style of wine desired, and then to make the wines in the best-suited region. Vinaceous Wines also looks to the future with new and emerging varieties grown in Australia, such as Vermentino, Pinot Grigio, Malbec and Tempranillo, to complement the more traditional offering of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Vinaceous labels and marketing reflect a philosophy of a travelling theatrical winemaking company. Each label represents one of nine personalities: men, women, angels, demons, mermaids, and other creatures of mythology, as a way of visually bringing this concept to life. Vinaceous champions single varietal wines (making only one red blend) from key maritime climates: Margaret River, Adelaide Hills, and McLaren Vale, the most noted wine regions of Australia. Some vineyards are Vinaceous-owned, while others are contracted, but all are subjected to the same standards across all aspects, from growing to harvest, winemaking to bottling. The Vinaceous philosophy on winemaking is simple: to produce the best varietal wines from the best vineyards, from the best regions in Australia.

Margaret River

Home to some of Australia’s most elegant and long-lived red and white wines, Margaret River is situated in the farthest reaches of Western Australia. Relatively warm and dry, the region is cooled by breezes from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River takes some inspiration from Bordeaux, producing top-quality Cabernet Sauvignon with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. Complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are another regional specialty. Also common here are refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, as well as earthy, aromatic Bordeaux Red Blends.

Malbec

Known for its big, bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec is most famous for its runaway success in Argentina. However, the variety actually originated in Bordeaux, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. After being nearly wiped out by a devastating frost in 1956, it was never significantly replanted, although it continued to flourish under the name Côt in nearby Cahors. A French agronomist who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. But it did not gain its current reputation as the country's national grape until a surge in popularity in the late 20th century.

In the Glass

Malbec typically expresses deep flavors of blackberry, plum and licorice, appropriately backed by aromas of freshly turned earth and dense, chewy tannins. In warmer, New World regions, such as Mendoza, Malbec will be intensely ripe, and full of fruit and spice. From its homeland in Cahors, its rusticity shines; dusty notes and a beguiling bouquet of violets balance rich, black fruit.

Perfect Parings

Malbec’s rustic character begs for flavorful dishes, like spicy grilled sausages or the classic cassoulet of France’s Southwest. South American iterations are best enjoyed as they would be in Argentina: with a thick, juicy steak.

Sommelier Secret

If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet. With its combination of bold flavors and soft tannins, it will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys red wine. Malbec also wins bonus points for affordability, as even the most inexpensive examples are often quite good.
