Soho Revolver Malbec Merlot Cabernet Franc 2019, Waiheke Island

Blended Red from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 25-Sep-2020
Deep, purple with a ruby-red core, lighter purple on the rim. The nose is elegantly presented, well-proportioned aromas of succulent red berries, red cherries, red plums enlivened by cedar, leather and barrel spices. Medium-full bodied, an amalgam of red fruit aromas, red cherry pie, interweave new leather, cedar and barrel spices. The fruit is lush with bright acidity forms a good core. Breadth palate enlivened by fine-grain tannin extraction with a youthful appearance provides structure. The wine flows with good energy lends a red-fruited, fresh finish. This is an elegant blended red with red-fruited flavours, cedar, barrel spice details on a robust youthful tannin structure. Match with ribeye steaks and osso buco over the next 3-5 years. Fruit from Carter’s Jomara Vineyard, Onetangi. Malbec 47%, Merlot 29%, Cabernet Franc 24%, fermented to 13.5% alc, 20% new oak. Vegan friendly. 17.5+/20 pts Sept 2020 RRP $45
