There would be no wines on Kangaroo Island if it wasn't for the rugged, powerful and legendary stump jump plough used to till the earth. This Malbec is just as rugged, just as powerful and just as legendary. A wine power tool.
Australia's third-largest island Kangaroo Island is 70 miles south west of Adelaide in the Gulf of St Vincent. The vines on this rugged and tiny patch of land are cooled by the prevailing southerly winds from the Antarctic and the rich red ironstone soils afford the wines a unique sense of place. In 2000 Jacques Lurton planted an 11ha vineyard near Parndana in Kangaroo Island's heartland and christened the estate 'The Islander'. Close planting to restrict yields and increase concentration, fermentation in concrete tanks and old fashioned basket pressing plus quality fine-grained French oak all combine to produce wines with great structure and longevity. This received 95 points in James Halliday's Wine Companion.
