Malbec from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 03-Jun-2020
Deep, dark ruby-purple, lighter on edge. The nose is rich and welcoming with fragrances of black plums, blackberries, melded with violet florals, along with meaty, savoury notes, oak spices and a metallic mineral underlay. Medium-full bodied, the palate is gently full with flavours of blackberries, black plums, subtle violet fragrant, along with fresh oak spices. The acidity is vibrant and balanced with the richness of fruit and body; which carries a savouriness and supported by soft, natural high tannin, through to a smooth, lengthy finish. A soothing wintery wine with vibrance and structure. Fermented in stainless steel to 14% alc, aged in Fench oak barriques for 18 months, 30% new oak. 18.5/20 pts July 2020 RRP $32.50
