About This Wine 

Malbec has been a quiet over achiever in Australia, only now are a handful of producers making it the star of their wine offering. Coates source their malbec from an almost forgotten maritime vineyard in Robe, south of Adelaide. Putting in the necessary work to get the vines back to fighting fitness, Duane is now stoked with the quality of fruit. Using wild yeasts and keeping whole berries for half of the ferment, the wine was put into into 33% new French oak for 18 months. This wine is unfined and unfiltered. Man of many talents, winemaker Duane Coates gives a nod to old world styles in a pragmatic and transparent manner. Creating varietally driven, wines that are true to the Australian terroir.

Man of many talents; Duane Coates bases himself in McLaren Vale, though his winery is in the Adelaide Hills, however he sources from all over South Australia. Having spent time in Burgundy, Rhone and Portugal his wines pay homage to the old world styles he has come to love. Still being true to Australia's climate, he has explored which grapes suit his terroir in a pragmatic, transparent way. 

Beautiful fragrant classics, some slightly left of field reds and certain enjoyment make Coates wines a no brainer. 

Duane Coates is, by his own admission, a ‘heart over head’ winemaker. Inclined to make wine from almost any interesting parcel of fruit made available to him. For Duane, making great wine is not about business decisions; it’s about curiosity, passion, and a little bit of folly.
