Ash Ridge Premium Malbec 2019, Hawke’s Bay

Malbec from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 26-May-2023
Rich, deep purple with a ruby hue, lighter on the rim. The nose is full, with rich minerals, blackberry, boysenberry, and melded with spice and tobacco. Medium-full bodied, aromas of blackberry and boysenberry formed a tight core with finely-weaved tannins, unfolding dark minerals, tobacco and spice. The mouthfeel is velvety with a grip of tannin extraction; lively acidity carries freshness to a rich-toned finish. Match with braised short rib and smoked brisket over the next 5-7 years. 13% alc. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) May 2023 RRP $35
