Moana Park Gimblett Road Merlot Malbec 2018, Hawkes Bay

Blended Red from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 28-May-2020
Clear, deep ruby-red, lighter purple hue on edge. The nose is fragrant, youthful and approachable with nuances of black currants, and black Doris plums melded with charming spices. Energetic acidity fills the palate with freshness, vibrant, juicy currants and black plums engage fragrant of sage, cedar oak elements leaves a grippy dry finish. This is a medium-bodied, youthful, approachable Hawkes Bay red with lots of freshness, accompanied by currants and spiced black plums, grippy cedary tannin and a subtle sage note, carried the palate to a textured dry finish. Match with venison, meat pie over the next 3-5 years. Vegan certified. Destemmed, wild-fermented in stainless steel to 13.5% alc, full MLF, matured 16 months in barrels. Unfined unfiltered. 17.5/20pts May2020 RRP$22.95
