Delicate hand picked fruit provides the aromatics. Revel in this wine's light body, heady spiciness and juicy acidity.

Welkin #project5255 Malbec: #project5255 is a world renowned project created by Langhorne Creek Grape & Wine to highlight the versatility and quality of the region. We chose to work with Malbec and have crafted a perfumed, spiced, and  nuanced modern take on Langhorne Creek Malbec. Has to be sniffed to be believed!

Welkin Nero d'AvolaDevil by name, but not by nature. Beautifully intense purple in colour with aromatics that jump out of the glass. Pure fruited aromas of redcurrant and spicy plum follow through on to the palate with fresh acidity keeping the wine lively and vibrant. A slight rasp of powdery tannin mouth-grip adds a savoury element and helps the flavours go on and on.
