Tironui Estate Hawke’s Bay Malbec/Merlot/Cabernet 2014

Malbec from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 01-Mar-2016
Near impenetrable black-hued red colour with youthful purple hues on the rim. This has an elegantly concentrated, firm nose with bright and vibrant, fragrant, dark red berry and blackcurrant fruit aromas, with subtly lifted oak notes. Medium-full bodied, the fruit flavours of dark red berry fruit and blackcurrants are interwoven with dark herbs and spices, and form an elegantly proportioned, but firmly concentrated core. The fruit and mouthfeel is enlivened by bright acidity, and refined tannins provide structure, grip and linearity. This has excellent energy and drive carrying the wine to a long, lingering finish of spicy blackcurrant fruit and herbs. This is a finely structured, vibrant black-fruited Malbec blend with freshness and elegance. Match with beef, lamb, venison and semi-hard cheeses over the next 6-8 years. A blend of 66% Malbec, 25% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, the fruit hand-picked and co-fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 20% new French oak 18.0/20 Mar 2016 RRP $35.00
