Soho Revolver Merlot Malbec Cabernet Franc 2021, Waiheke Island

Blended Red from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 31-Jan-2023
Deep, purple with depth, slightly lighter on edge. The nose is voluminous and elegantly presented, with cassis, plum and raspberry aromas interweaved with tobacco, menthol, clove and nutmeg. Medium-full bodied, cassis, plum and raspberry have a bright core, entwined with tobacco, menthol, clove and nutmeg. Velvety, fine-grained tannin framework and lively acidity provide a backbone. This youthful Waiheke red blend shows good structure and vibrant red fruit with oak complexity, which will benefit from cellaring. Match with beef wellington and roasted lamb over the next 6+ years. A blend of 60% Merlot, 16% Malbec, 10% Cab Franc, 9% Petit Verdot and 5% Syrah, fermented to 14.5% alc, aged in French oak barrels, 40% new oak. Vegan friendly. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Jan 2023 RRP $49
