2013 Cloudburst Malbec Cloudburst

Cloudburst makes perhaps the single most collectable wine currently being made in Australia. The tiny total produced are mainly found on the lists of high-end restaurants (French Laundry in Napa, Tribeca Grill in New York, Rockpool in Sydney, the list goes on…) or at the cellar door, meaning that very little is ever available for consumers to buy.


Founded as recently as 2006, this is a young winery already garnering serious praise:


Wine Spectator in March 2016: “The results, since his [Will Berliner, winemaker at Cloudburst] first vintage, have been spectacular, showing richness, complexity, ripeness and depth without high alcohol. The tiny production, totaling only a few hundred cases, gets top dollar and has collectors clamoring. It could end up being the most-coveted Cabernet there.”


Wine Advocate in November 2016: “Cloudburst's new little piece of heaven, a closely planted, dry-grown, biodynamically farmed vineyard just off the Cave's Road, continues to yield stunning results.”


The wines come with a phenomenal reputation and indeed a price-tag to match. The vines are ungrafted and the Margaret River climate produces extraordinary depth and complexity. These are world-class wines from a tiny boutique operation, extraordinarily collectable and available for the very first time in the UK.

Bright crimson; an impeccably made wine without a single blemish in its complexion, the bouquet and palate deliver the same message: clearly varietal plum with fine tannins and quality oak. Mar 2015, www.winecompanion.com.au, Drink: 2016-2027



The 2013 Cloudburst Malbec is deep garnet-purple in color, with a heady blackcurrant and plum perfume plus meaty / earthy notes and a savory chocolate suggestion. Medium-bodied with good concentration, it has a chewy tannin backbone and long finish with a touch of balsamic coming through. Nov 2015, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2016-2022
