Vinaceous Wines (established 2007) is also owned and operated by marketer Nick Stacy & winemaker Mike Kerrigan; part of the new movement of non-traditional wine producers – choosing to source grapes from the best vineyards in the premium maritime climate wine regions of Margaret River, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale to make their unique range of fine Australian wines. As well as the usual French varietals, Vinaceous champions emerging new varietals such as Pinot Grigio, Vermentino and Tempranillo.
With beautiful, original artwork inspired by the late 1800’s theatrical billboards, they have received international acclaim & awards and have come to represent a ‘traveling carnival’ of characters! Awarded the producer rating of FIVE STARS in the 2016 James Halliday Wine Companion, the Vinaceous Wines legend continues to grow.
Famous as one of the traditional Bordeaux red grape varieties, Malbec is grown all over the world especially Argentina and now increasingly in Australia. Valued for its amazing depth of colour, generosity of fruit expression and fullness of flavour, 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. The 2015 Vinaceous Voodoo Moon Malbec is our fifth vintage of this exciting varietal.
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 colour 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.
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.
Match with roast meats, braises and mature cheeses. Approximately 625 dozen produced.
