Tironui Estate Hawke’s Bay Malbec/Merlot/Cabernet 2013

Malbec from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 01-Mar-2016
Full, deep, near saturated black-red colour, youthful in appearance. This has a full nose with ripe fruit aromas of dark red and black plums harmoniously melded with subtle earth and spice notes and a little nutty, resinous oak. This is soft and even in presentation, the fruit gently fulling the bouquet. Medium-full bodied, the palate features gently mouthfilling flavours of sweetly ripe black berried and plum fruits complexed by soft earth, spice and nutty oak nuances. Ripe tannins support the fruit and grow in presence to provide plenty of mouthfeel, texture and grip. The acidity is soft and integral, allowing the structure to carry the wine to a long finish of spiced black fruits. This is a mouthfilling, ripe, black-berry and spicy plum fruited Malbec blend with plenty of grip and structure. Serve with game meat and casserolesover the next 7-9+ years. A blend of 67% Malbec, 28% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the fruit hand-picked and co-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 20 months in 2-3 y.o. French oak. 18.0-/20 Mar 2016 RRP $35.00
