Description

"This is meaty, spicy and fruity, and offers loads of tasty flavours. Fragrant aromas of dark fruit, black olive, cured meat and floral lead to a succulent palate that is plump and fleshy. The wine shows excellent fruit purity and intensity, and is friendly and very approachable. A wonderful partner to rich meat dishes. At its best: now to 2019." Sam Kim Wine Orbit

This elegant wine has exotic aromas of warm summer berries and a hint of toasty spice. The palate is rich with flavours of ripe perfumed blackberries and boysenberries leading to a luscious velvety cocoa texture.

The outstanding fruit was sourced from a single vineyard in winegrowing district of Hawkes Bay  The vineyard site has ideal ripening conditions for achieving the intense aromatics and delicate structure that the Malbec variety can give. Drink now or carefully cellar for up to five years from vintage date.

Food Pairing: A perfect match with seared medium-rare rib eye steak.

A flavourful hearty red. Great with venison steaks by a roaring fire.
